In a thank you visit to the Commission’s headquarters in Abuja, Retirees and Pensioners under the aegis of Concerned Retirees and Pensioners in Nigeria, led by her coordinator Alhaji Auwal Garba thanked the Commission for the various reforms that have made the pension system and payment very seamless, including the newly launched Pension Enhancement for Retirees on Programmed withdrawal under the Contributory Pension Scheme.
