By John Shiklam in Kaduna
The Kaduna State government will commence the implementation of the new pension scheme on Tuesday by paying pension benefits to its retirees.
The Executive Secretary, Kaduna State Pension Bureau, Mr. Dan Ndackson, who disclosed this at a news conference in Kaduna on Sunday, said the state government introduced the new scheme so as to address the hardship faced by pensioners.
He said the new pension scheme remedies the problems and failures arising from the implementation of the 2007 pension law and saddled the state with more arrears of pension and gratuity.
Ndackson explained that the new pension arrangements protects the earned pension rights of workers and end the problems that unfunded pension schemes have always created for pensioners and government alike.
