Retired Soldiers Besiege Finance Ministry, Demand Pension Arrears Payment

Some retired military personnel, on Wednesday, stormed the headquarters of the Federal Ministry of Finance in Abuja to demand the immediate payment of their pension arrears.

The retirees under the aegis of Coalition for Concerned Veterans accused the federal government of owing them 24-month arrears of the approved minimum wage for military veterans, debarment allowance, among others.

The leader of the group, Abiodun Durowaiye-Herberts, said they had embarked on the protest as a result of the untold hardship and clear neglect of members by the authorities.

He lamented that despite serving the country with all their might to ensure the country remains united, peaceful and free, they are being subjected to such treatment.

Durowaiye-Herberts vowed that they would continue with the protest until their demands are met.

Meanwhile, the chairman, Military Pensions Board, Commodore S.A. Lawal, has however assured pensioners that funds for payment of the 24 months minimum wage pension arrears to military pensioners was included in the Board’s year 2022 budget.

Commodore Lawal disclosed this while reacting to series of protests by members of some military veteran groups.
