The Ogun State Salary Earner’s Co-operative Thrift and Credit Union limited has appealed to the state Governor, Dapo Abiodun to pay the 17 months outstanding co-operative deductions so as to save its members from ‘continuous dying’ .
The union in a statement jointly signed by its president, Bodude Tanimola and General Manager, Sunday Ajayi appealed to Governor Abiodun to intervene so as to reduce the number of death recorded among its members.
The union lamented that children of many of its members have dropped out of school over the inability to pay school fees and cater for other important school needs.
The union complained that the non-remittance of the co-operative deductions has run into billions of naira.
In the statement, the union stressed that several letters written to the state Governor, the Head of Service and commissioner for Community Development and Cooperative, among b others were not replied.
The letter reads partly, “there is inability of our members to take care of their immediate and extended family welfare.
“There is also inability to give out loan to our co-operative members.”
