A passionate call has been made to President Muhammadu Buhari by the pensioners of Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) to revisit the sale agreement of the company as part of the efforts to sanitise the power sector and save funds for the country.
Leading the pensioners in a chat with newsmen, Alhaji Idris Amasa, said the call was necessary as “PHCN buildings and the National Integrated Power Project (NIPP) were not included in the agreement”.
The pensioners spoke in Gombe during the weekend while making a case for their unpaid pension and arrears of salary.
According to him, PHCN pensioners were in penury and suffering as a result of their unpaid pension.
He said, “We pensioners are in great financial difficulty because of the non-payment of our pension and arrears as most of us do not have alternative means of income and cannot even pay our children’s school fees”.
