The Covid-19 pandemic has confined the local government pensioners in Kogi state to their respective homes.
When they are free to move about, they have nothing to eat or buy drugs sake of the peanuts called pension which is half and released at government convenience.
To this end, I am pleading to the state government and kind-hearted people of Nigeria to save this section of pensioners.
They were not lazy during their services to their father land. Most are graduates of high levels. The attitude of the government officials have turned us to beggars.
Sincerely, I will want our people to be assisted with rice, semovita, gari etc to cushion the harsh effects of this lockdown.
These pensioners can be reached at their various villages or wards.
God bless you as you react positively to this. They should not be allowed to die like this.
