“As at today, in 27 States in Nigeria, some senior citizens who retired from service after 35 years of meritorious service are being owed gratuities and pensions! What right have the politicians to go with such questionable benefits when those that served for closed to four decades are denied entitlements?

“MMWG also call on President Muhammadu Buhari to priotise restoration of power stability, employment of youth, step-up of anti-corruption fight, overhauling of our educational and health system for the benefit of all Nigerians.
