Police retirees in Kaduna state have given the inspector-general of police (IGP) two weeks ultimatum to exit them from the Nigerian Police Contributory Pension Scheme before May 15th, 2023.
The vice chairman, Nigerian Police Association under Contributory Pension Scheme, CSP Mannir Lawal (rtd) spoke on behalf of other police retirees shortly after a prayer session in Kaduna on Thursday.
According to him, the contributory scheme has left them and their families impoverished since its establishment, adding that the association has recorded over 500 deaths from 2007 till date.
While lamenting that their family no longer have respect for them due to over dependency, CSP Mannir disclosed that police officers who retired before the establishment of the contributory pension scheme are doing well far ahead of them because they have received their entitlements after their years of service.
He said in the event that the IGP refuse to listen to their plea, they will have no choice than to pack their belongings and families to storm the Force Headquarters, Abuja so they can have a befitting burial because they can no longer afford to conduct burial for themselves due to the numerous challenges posed on them by the contributory agency.
