Pictures of Pensioners' Protest In Abuja this morning

What these retired workers are made to go through is disheartning. Sometimes, they're instructed to stand under the sun and in the rain for days for accredition, yet, their very little stipends still don't get paid.

My heart goes out to these elders of our land. This morning they protested over unpaid monthly pensions in Abuja. The pensioners gathered at the office of head of the Civil Service of the federation at the Federal Secretariat  demanding for payment of their monthly stipends.
 More Pictures after the cut.

Meanwhile, remember that Nigerian official anti-corruption agency  EFCC recently arrested top officials who stole and shared billions of Naira from the pension funds
