Retired soldiers protest non-payment of pension arrears in Abuja



RETIRED soldiers, on Wednesday, stormed the Ministry of Finance, Abuja, to protest non-payment of their pension arrears.

According to a report by Channels TV, the retired soldiers also demanded the inclusion of officers who fought in the civil war in the military pension scheme.

They also asked the Federal Government to stop all deductions from the pensions of all retired medical officers.

The ex-servicemen further called for the approval of the payment of minimum wage arrears accruing to them since 2019.

Anthony Agbas, who delivered a letter to officials at the Ministry of Finance on behalf of the retired soldiers, told Channels TV that they fought for the country and deserved their pensions.

He added that they were hopeful that their demands would be met without further delay, following the peaceful protest.
