NIGER ASSEMBLY: House urges Gov Bello to review Pension Scheme Act

By Seun Aweda

LEGISREPORTS NG – The Niger State House of Assembly has urged the state governor, Abubakar Sani Bello to set up a committee to review the state Pension Scheme Act 2006 so as to resolve issues surrounding the deduction of 7.5 per cent workers’ contribution.

The matter was raised on the floor of the House via a motion by Hon. Madaki Malik Bosso on the need to review the pension laws which prescribes 7.5 per cent contribution by workers to the pension scheme. 

Bosso explained that the motion was necessitated by the concerns of civil servants and retirees in the state who believe that the law was not favourable to them and therefore not implementable in the state. 

The lawmaker stated that the civil servants had raised concern that either there is an inadequacy in the law or the poor implementation of the law or lack of competent personnel to implement the law in the state.
