There are clear signs that things are not going well at the Nigeria Union of Pensioners office in Kwara State, as accusations have been made against the leadership by an unnamed faction of the union.
The group had informed other pensioners that the leadership was stealing N2,000 from the monthly pension salaries.
Additionally, it was claimed that the union’s current leadership was largely made up of retired members of local government councils who managed the organization similarly to the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT).
In response to the development, Malam Saidu Oladimeji Mahmud, the state chairman of the Nigeria Union of Pensioners, denounced the accusations and said, “They are distractions.”
He stated that with the leadership rather than create a crisis in the union.
