Retired Military Officers in Ekiti State, Urges Muhammadu Buhari to Pay Their Entitlement in Other to Rescue Them From Death

Military Officers in Ekiti State who retired voluntarily from the Nigerian Military after prosecuting the civil war of 1967 -1970, have appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to commence payment of pension to their members in order to rescue them from poverty and untimely death.

They sadly narrates that over 60 of their members, out of the 240 at the initial stage, had died due to poor medical conditions while more than 70 are suffering severe ailments without any financial help to address their predicaments.

Under the aegis of Voluntarily Retired Military Officers (VRMO), 1978-1979, the Publicity Secretary of the Ekiti Chapter of VRMO, Mr. Bello Oseni, urged President Buhari to honour his 2015 pledge to extend payment of pension to all retired officers that took part in the civil war.
