Hon. Mike Etaba, Deputy Chairman, House committee on Pensions yesterday addressed stakeholders at the Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD) North Central Zone Stakeholders Forum on the need to make sure pensioners get all their entitlement. He appreciated the efforts PTAD have made so far to work in harmony with the National Assembly and the President.
“Statistically, pensioners have never had it this good for a long time now but as Oliver Twist will always ask for more, they is room for more to be done that will benefit Nigerians who have led a life of servitude to the country.
As legislators, your service have contributed immensely to make us who we are today and we will always work hard together with the Executive to make sure you are treated even better. We commend your composure and have made sure your budget is well included to follow the new minimum wage subsequently.”
