The Executive Director, Senator E.A. Lamai Foundation and member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Richard Lamai, has said that the APC means well for the country.

Lamai also said that with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as president of the country, a new Nigeria will unfold.

Speaking with Sunday Sun in Abuja, Lamai said that by completing projects started by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) administration and initiating new ones, APC has shown that it is not a self-serving entity and has been able to change the usual narrative of policy somersaults and saved the country from the brink of imminent collapse in 2015.

Among other issues, Lamai explained the idea behind the newly established Senator E.A. Lamai Foundation.

What necessitated the establishment of the Senator E.A. Lamai Foundation?

Our father, Senator Ekpemoriri Akhagbemhe Lamai, was a well-known humanitarian and nationalist during his lifetime. His foray into politics was a natural progression from his love for the improvement of his community, as evidenced by his numerous contributions. From adolescence, it was already clear that he stood for the upliftment of his fellow man and sought to defend and promote all issues relating to their wellbeing. He abhorred oppression and injustice and confronted any scenario or power that denigrated humans.

The Nigeria Union of Pensioners (NUP), has expressed optimism that Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun State will clear about N172 billion owed pensioners in the state.

The union commended Adeleke for prioritizing the welfare of retirees since his assumption of office in November 2022.

The state is indebted to the tune of about N172 billion pensions which includes contributory pensions, the half salary of old pensioners, and the implementation of an N18,000 minimum wage.

The state secretary of the union, Dele Aina, who stated that the whole amount owed the pensioners is about N172 billion, maintained that Adeleke will do as promised and pay the debt in the interest of the peace of the state.

It was gathered that the former governor Rauf Aregbesola owed the pension which was inherited by his successor, Adegboyega Oyetola.

Findings showed that the inability of former governor Oyetola to offset the pensions led to disagreement between his government and the pensioners in the state.
