General Secretary, National Union of Textile and Garment Workers of Nigeria, Issa Aremu, Monday, urged Adams Oshiomole to reject the N200 million pension approved for him by the Edo State Assembly.
Aremu, who made the appeal in a statement at Kaduna said the ex-governor must show a difference by shunning such offers which may revert the esteem in which Nigerians view him.
“We appeal to former Governor of Edo state, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole to make a positive difference by not collecting the life pension benefit as approved by the state assembly.
“Comrade Oshiomhole had beaten the governors to good governance as evidenced by his globally acknowledged record of achievements as governor of Edo state.
“He should therefore not join the former governors on unjust pension that is unnecessary and unsustainable in a recession”, the statement read in part.
