The Nigerian Union of Pensioners (NUP), University of Jos Sectoral Branch has written the Director of Civil Liberties Organization (CLO) to come to their aid and save their souls as they are languishing owing to the non-payment of their entitlement by the University authority.
In the over 42 paged letter, loaded with exhibits of documents to the Director of CLO, signed by the Chairman of NUP University of Jos Branch, Comrd. Uchenna S. E. Uwajeh, the Union while crying out, said, “We are languishing! We are going extinct, SAVE OUR SOULS (SOS).”.
According to the letter, the Pensioners stated that as severed staff of the University of Jos, they have been suffering and going through untold hardship since their severance on 13th May, 2007.
They stated that 637 of them were severed by Prof. Sunny Tyoden, then as the Vice Chancellor of University of Jos and over 129 of them have died.
“With him, we concluded that at that level of this country, there is hardly any honourable person.” They stated.
Explaining, NUP stated that, “it is rather unfortunate that we were treated this way because, those officers who retired before 1st July, 2007, but, not under severance were placed on their correct monthly CONTISS/CONUASS.
“Permit me to say that Prof. Sonni G. Tyoden severed us to make money out of us for his political campaign”.
