0

The Social Democratic Party (SDP), has slammed the Abia State government for its alleged insensitivity to the plight of teachers and pensioners in the state.

The chairman of SDP in the state, Hon. Chidi Nwosu, who spoke with reporters at a press conference in Umuahia, on Thursday, claimed that none of the pensioners in the state had received gratuities since Governor Okezie Ikpeazu assumed office in 2015.

He said, “Non-payment of gratuities has become a sin-qa-none, no retiree has received his or her gratuities since the governor assumed office.

“Pensioners and secondary school teachers have to brace up. There is no promise the Governor has made on the clearing of secondary school teachers salary arrears that he has not reneged.

“The governor says so much and does next to nothing. He does not worth his talk. Secondary school teachers were last paid in February, more than six months ago”.

“The teachers have never been paid promotion arrears since the inception of Okezie Ikpeazu government. And they have been owed annual leave grants for more than ten years just like their counterparts in primary schools”.

Nwosu said, SDP as part of her social responsibility to the people of Abia state, shall periodically evaluate sectoral performance of the PDP-led administration in the face of unabated sufferings of the people.
