Pensioners elect Lagos excos


The Nigeria Union of Pensioners (NUP), Lagos State Council on Thursday elected members of the executives.They were elected during the State Quadrennial Delegate Election held at the NUT Pavilion, Ikeja, Lagos.The Vice President, NUP Southwest, Elder Ayo Kumapayi commended the delegates for a peaceful conduct.He advised the exco to keep up the good work.

They’ve been working well and made some substantial achievements but I will advise them to work for having their own state headquarters because they are the only one in the Southwest without state headquarters. We appeal to the state government help them in that regard,” he said.Chairman of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) Lagos State Council, Comrade Agnes Sessi lauded the NUP for conducting a peaceful election without rancour.She urged other unions to emulate the pensioners

Democracy should be allowed to thrive in our society. If someone tries to put his/her personal interest first, we will surely have crisis during election. It’s not only good enough to say I want to serve, it should be a democratic setting where people will have a voice in choosing who to lead them and not for us to enforce ourselves on to the people,” Comrade Sessi said.Revd Alexander Johnson, who was re-elected for another four years, reiterated his commitment to work for the betterment of the pensioners.

He said: “I’m highly elated and I thank God because, he’s the one that gives promotion and my work had not been in vain. They made me know that I deserve another term; they should expect more from me.”

According to him, a good leader does not take decision alone rather takes the decision made by majority.
