BBC Africa Eye goes undercover to expose an ineffective and corrupt pension system in Nigeria, which leaves some elderly people sick and penniless, yet grants some politicians inflated retirement packages.

Reporter Yemisi Adegoke travels to Cross River State to meet ‘Ghost Pensioners’ elderly people whom the State declared dead and deprived of their pensions.  Some of whom are forced to rely on financial support from their relatives and are subjected to dehumanising treatment from the State officials for petitioning for their pensions to be reinstated.

BBC Africa Eye brings you original, investigative journalism revealing secrets and rooting out injustice in the world’s most complex and exciting continent.

Nothing stays hidden forever.
