Delta - The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta has expressed displeasure over the poor condition of retirees in the state
In a statement by the caretaker publicity secretary of the party in the state, Sylvester Imonina.
According to Imonina, the former workers in the state lamented that because of poor treatment and non-payment of pension for about seven years, some of them die before attaining the age of 63.
The party, therefore, called on the retirees to make sure they vote out the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2023 so as to let sanity and development return to the state.
“All of us should prepare to end PDP-led government locust’s reign in the state. Affairs of our dear state cannot continue to be left in the hands of those who see our fathers and mothers as less humans.
“In the said birthday message of the senior citizens, a picture of how several members of the body die before attaining the age of 63, which Chief James Ibori recently celebrated, was painted. They were unequivocal on how the PDP-ed government of Sen. Ifeanyi Okowa has reduced them to walking ghosts."
