Buhari launches micro pension plan for retired public workers
Yesterday in Abuja, President Muhammadu Buhari launched the Micro Pension Plan, facilitated by the National Pensions Commission.
The President noted that the micro pension plan was specifically designed to capture those citizens that have not been captured in the formal corporate sector.
He described the plan as a natural next step which would guarantee a better life for Nigerian workers upon retirement.
He also enjoined Trade Associations, Unions, Non-Governmental Organizations and the informal sectors of the economy to join hands with Government in sensitizing the general public on the benefits of the laid out plan.
Furthermore, the President promised to sanitize the rot in the pension system, ensure that hard working Nigerians retire without fear, and ensure that the dignity of retired public servants in the country is restored.
