Alhaji Umar Munir Abubakar
The Managing Director of the Nigerian Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF) Alhaji Umar Munir Abubakar has charged the Nigerian workers to stand up against any oppression and infringement on their right.
Abubakar who spoke in Kano yesterday during one day interactive session with workers further implored them to fulfil the tenets of employment compensation Act 2010.
He explained that the compensation was an inalienable right workers should not allow their employers deny them, as he commended the federal government for taking the lead by paying the statutory one per cent contribution of its workers annual pay roll to the Fund.
He explained that “employers have not been forthcoming in their registration for the Act, stated that the Employers Compensation Act 2010 that set up the scheme has made it mandatory for employers, both in the private and public sectors to register for the scheme”.
Abubakar also told workers that "If your employers pay 1% of your pay roll to the NSITF as the law mandates them to, it is for your benefit, but if they don't you are the ones that will bear the brunt."
