Nigeria Army veterans, some of whom fought in the Nigerian Civil War, said that they are still owed their monthly pension.
Alhaji Bello Oseni, the association’s secretary for Ekiti State, declared in a statement released yesterday that “the position of our men is quite dreadful; some are sick and cannot even afford to feed themselves.” Some people struggle to afford even one meal a day, and others with chronic illnesses like blindness and stroke lack the funds to care for themselves. Some people are homeless.
The veterans are pleading with Nigerian politicians, the House of Representatives, the Senate, the governors of the states, and President Buhari—whom they thank for the approval—to have pity on them and see that their monthly pension arrears are paid without delay.
