PTAD Holds North-East Stakeholders Forum
The Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD) in continuation of its engagement with stakeholders has held a 2-day Stakeholders Engagement Forum in Gombe State.
PTAD Executive Secretary, Dr Chioma .N. Ejikeme in her speech delivered at the stakeholders forum said “In the past two years, the whole world has been thrown upside down by the Corona Virus pandemic which virtually grounded all activities all over the globe, and Nigeria was not an exception.
Bearing in mind that the safety of our Pensioners is of utmost importance to us, we opened up more channels of communication and complaints resolution to enable us serve you better while the country battled to contain the Virus. We are not completely out of the woods yet, with the various variants springing up here and there, but the situation has greatly improved, especially with the Covid-19 Vaccine. I do hope that you all have availed yourselves of the opportunity of the free vaccination being offered by the Government.
However, despite the lockdown, PTAD continued to pay monthly pensions promptly, resolve complaints, cleared accrued arrears, paid death benefits to some Next-Of-Kin and one-off payments of some Defunct Agencies such as the Nigerian Aviation Handling Company (NAHCO), Aluminium Smelter Company of Nigeria (ALSCON), as well as Ex-workers of Savannah Sugar Company who have submitted themselves for verification.”
