Police Retirees set to storm Aso Rock for protest tomorrow May 3rd. 

… Seeking removal of their names from contributory pension scheme,



Police retirees in Nigeria have given the inspector-general of police (IGP) Usman Alkali Baba two weeks ultimatum to exit their names from the Nigerian Police Contributory Pension Scheme before May 15th, 2023.

The vice chairman, Nigerian Police Association under Contributory Pension Scheme, CSP Mannir Lawal (rtd) spoke on behalf of other police retirees shortly after a prayer session in Kaduna recently.

According to him, the contributory scheme has left them and their families impoverished since its establishment, adding that the association has recorded over 500 deaths from 2007 till date.

While lamenting that their family no longer have respect for them due to over dependency, CSP Mannir disclosed that police officers who retired before the establishment of the contributory pension scheme are doing well far ahead of them because they have received their entitlements after their years of service.

He said in the event that the IGP refuse to listen to their plea, they will have no choice than to pack their belongings and families to storm the Force Headquarters, Abuja so they can have a befitting burial because they can no longer afford to conduct burial for themselves due to the numerous challenges posed on them by the contributory agency.


  1. The Nigeria Police Force is the worst organised system in the world and regrateful for one to have invested all his youthful life risking for his country onlly to be dimoned by senseless leaders who marginalised themselves in to corruptible interest without regarding their subordinates not minding that without the subordinates they can do nothing. Imagine that they have created walls of contacting them. The police henceforth must be in the Labor union. It is only a way of intimidation and slavery to stop a person from expressing right of speach. Sunset this while many African countries their Police have unions. As at the Nigeria Police first strike South African Police Union president was the president General of South Africa Union. For the past sixteen years after retirement, I have been on 23,879.79k while my mates who retired before completing 35 years smile home with ₦104,000.00 and have received over #6m in batches when ever Police salary increase is implemented.

  2. Whore betide the IGPs as at year 2007 who having amassed corruptible wealth refused to opt out like the armed forces. My squad mate who worked in the police finance all the way understood the implications and retired six months earlier is now smiling home with ₦107k monthly pension and has received four millions arrears in two batches while I am still marking time on ₦23k monthly payment for the past sixteen years after retirement? What a difference. he retired as ASP on probation while I confirmed. I will join Kaduna group. TION for KADPOL retirees

  3. This action/engagement is long overdue. We cannot be & remain paupers after serving our dear Country creditably, loyally & passionately at the prime and productive phases of our lives, only to be treated as second class citizens in our own Country, under this obnoxious & oppressive Contributions Pension Scheme (CPS),
