Pension Fund Management and Administration Workshop
By: Centre for Management Development (CMD)
Imo State, Nigeria
Nov 17 - 21 Nov, 2014
The Federal Government of Nigeria, not too long ago, embarked on pension reforms in both the public and private sectors of the economy for the purpose of easing the burden of pension payment liabilities, harmonising pension schemes in both sectors of the economy, ensuring viable investment of pension funds and effecting prompt payment of pension benefits. The reforms have created mixed feelings among Nigerian workers. At the outset, there was a strong feeling among a segment of the workforce that they may lose out in the current dispensation of reforms. However, the thinking now is a bit different; many do not see the need for the reforms. Some still believe that the former pension scheme is better than the present. This may have been caused by lack of proper information. There is no doubt that the new pension scheme has come to stay. Therefore, it is necessary to intensify efforts in enlightening the public on the motives behind the new pension reforms and its benefits to workers, employers and the Nigerian economy. This workshop has been designed to give greater insight into the new pension scheme and its various benefits to employers and employees alike, and to the Nigerian economy.
