This piece of news will excite those who have worked hard for the country and have now retired. This is because the Federal Government has reiterated its commitment to improve the welfare of pensioners.
At a media briefing in Abuja, Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Mrs Winifred Oyo-Ita, said the government has lined up a number of programs to assuage some of the challenges confronting effective service delivery to pensioners.
She disclosed this while addressing newsmen in her office as part of activities to mark the 2016 Nigeria Civil Service Week celebration.
Mrs Oyo-Ita stated that “a tripartite committee of Pension Transitory Arrangement Directorate, National Pension Commission (PenCom) and the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation (OHCSF) have been instituted to monitor and ensure speedy address to appeals and petitions on pension matters, and also ensure quick payment.”
