The Association of Contributing Retirees (ACR) has thrown their weight behind Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborewori, the candidate of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) in the gubernatorial election of Saturday, March 18, 2023.


At a town hall meeting held at Dantinajo Resort Hotel, Oleh, Isoko South Local Government Area, Delta State, recently, the association, having expressed their pains amid fear over their delayed gratuity, resolved to support the candidature of Rt. Hon. Oborevwori on the assurance that their demand will be given top priority, even before the end of this administration.


In a motion moved by Comrade Frank Oviomo, Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the association, they unanimously agreed to vote for the PDP candidate at the coming election.


Speaking earlier, the chairman of the Local Government Pension Bureau, Mr. Ben Igho, assured that government was doing everything possible to ensure that the benefits of the retirees will be paid within the shortest possible time. He said that the state government was working on securing a bond towards the liquidation of all the outstanding payment.


Also speaking, the convener of the meeting, Prince Joseph Kpokpogri, identified with the pains and agonies of the retirees and the need for the recognition of the body of retirees (ACR). He stressed the need to prioritize the payment of retirees in the current administration or the incoming government of Rt. Hon. Sheriff.


The Secretary, ACR, Prince Gordon Etuwede, speaking on behalf of the members, thanked the convener and the team from the bureau of local government pension and their association members for the attendance. He appealed that such meeting should be sustained for harmonious coexistence.
