Ekiti: PFAs Charged on Service Delivery

 

By RAZAQ BAMIDELE

 

Pension Fund Administrators (PFAs) handling the Contributory Pension Scheme (CPS) in Ekiti State have been charged to fast-track service delivery to boost workers interest and confidence in the state.
The Executive Secretary, Pension Commission, Mr. James Idowu Akinola gave the charge at a meeting he held with Pension Fund Administrators to brainstorm on how to improve Contributory Pension Scheme in the State.
The Ekiti Pension Commission boss, who referred to the PFAs as partners in progress, intimated them of the plan of the Commission to embark on sensitization programmes to Ministries, Departments and Agencies as from April this year adding that the PFAs will be fully involved to speak about CPS and funds being remitted by civil servants into coffers of the national body of the Commission.
Mr. Akinola praised the efforts of the Commission in carrying out   sensitization programmes in some institutions, which he said yielded positive result as more people are now showing interest
consequent upon awareness created about the scheme.
While responding, the Zonal Business Manager, Premium Pension Limited, Mr. Abolarin Yinka, who commended the management of Ekiti State Pension Commission for their plan to embark on sensitization programme, noted that when people are better informed about the scheme, it would be easier for them to key into the scheme which would reduce the tension of the PFAs.
The PFA of Fidelity Pension Managers Limited, who is also the Group Head, Business Development and Strategy (South), Mr. Donald Onuoha suggested the need to organize Radio/TV programmes where the Executive Secretary and the PFAs will be on air to further sensitize
the general public and attend to requests of their clients.
Lauding Ekiti Pension Commission for being well organized when compared with others he has been dealing with, the Pension Fund Administrator of Sigma Pension Limited, Mr. John Igiehon enjoined it
to be relentless in its efforts.
A total number of 26 managers representing 13 PFAs enumerated some of their challenges to include inability to register some officers as some have died while others have either been
transferred or probably retired.
