Some retired workers of the Radio Lagos and Lagos television have appealed to the state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, to pay their benefits before leaving office on May 29.
The appeal was made by the spokesperson of the group, Biodun Akinbusuyi, in an interview with newsmen in Lagos on Tuesday.
Akinbusuyi noted that they were transferred from two parastatal-agencies to the main service in 2016.
He added that the Lagos State Pension Commission returned the retirees’ files to the two parastatal-agencies and said their terminal benefits should be paid by the organisations.
“We are pleading with Ambode to assist the parastatals-agencies by approving the terminal benefits, which is not up to N100 million, before the end of his administration, we are not more than 20 retirees affected by this development.”
Recall that the Lagos State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Kehinde Bamigbetan, earlier promised the retirees that their terminal benefits would be paid as well as assist in ensuring that issues causing the delay in treating the files of the affected retirees would be sorted out.
He said though the Radio Lagos/Lagos television are financially unstable to pay the retirees’ terminal benefits just as he assured them that the Governor would do his utmost before handing over.
