Retired teachers want Fashola to parley FG over pension arrears

The Teacher Pensioners Association of Nigeria (TEPAN), has called on the Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Raji Fashola (SAN) to liaise with the Federal Government on its behalf to ensure that all the accumulated arrears of its members are paid.

The Lagos State Chairman of the association, Mr. Afolabi Isaac Folagbade made this appeal on behalf of his association recently, when the body hosted the governor.

Commending the governor for its positive pronouncements regarding the pensioners in the state, Folagbade said the association would give the administration the benefit of the doubt, even as they expect a brighter and rewarding future from his government.
