The Nigeria Union of Pensioners in Osun State have set up a camp for some members, who are in need in Osogbo, referring to it as Internally Displaced Pensioners’ camp.



The Chairman of the Pensioners’ Forum for the 2011/2012 retirees, Mr Omoniyi Ilesanmi, set the camp close to the Popular Mandela Freedom Park that was built by Gov. Rauf Aregbesola.


The pensioners, who were seen in hundreds, including the aged who could hardly walk, are present at the camp.


The pensioners were seated under the canopies erected and their leaders served them cooked rice while bags of uncooked rice were also available for future purposes.


At the camp, doctors, nurses and other medical practitioners were available to offer free service.


A retired Judge of Osun State High Court, Justice Olamide Oloyede, who was present at the camp said care for the aged was one of the constitutional provisions.


Oloyede, who in 2015, asked the State House of Assembly to impeach Aregbesola and his deputy, Mrs Titi Laoye-Tomori, for failing to pay workers salaries and pensions, urged the people not to be afraid of demanding for their rights.
