  • It is my honour to welcome you, on behalf of the Management of the National Pension Commission, to this very important Interactive Workshop on the Contributory Pension Scheme. You are no doubt aware that the Federal Government, as part of its on-going Economic and Governance Reform Programme, enacted the Pension Reform Act, 2004 which established the Contributory Pension Scheme and introduced major changes to our pension system. The Act also established the National Pension Commission that is charged with the responsibility of regulating and supervising all pension matters in Nigeria. In order to ensure that the new scheme achieves its primary goal of providing an enduring, self-sustaining and effective pension system, the understanding, cooperation and support of stakeholders is crucial.

    I am delighted to welcome you to the Commemorative Dinner of the 10th Anniversary of the Pension Reform in Nigeria holding in Lagos. We are highly honored by the presence of all our distinguished guests at tonight's occasion, amidst your engaging commitments. This Dinner is being held as part of the commemorative activities of the 10th Anniversary of the implementation of the Pension Reform in Nigeria which commenced at Abuja in July, 2014. It would be recalled that these activities were kick started with the successful hosting by Nigeria, through PenCom, of the maiden World Pension Summit 'Africa Special', organized in collaboration with the World Pension Summit Organization, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. It was followed by the Commemorative Gala held at the Presidential Villa, Abuja where some Icons of the Pension Reform were also recognized for their various distinguished roles in its actualization. It is noteworthy to mention that His Excellency, President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, GCFR was present at both events as Special Guest of Honour, which was indicative of the Government's commitment to the pension industry and confidence in its modest accomplishments. This event therefore, commemorates the milestone of a journey which sought to break Nigeria away from an endless cycle of despair in its pension sector and launch it into a new era of blissful retirement for  all employees. The assemblage brings together private sector leaders, the Icons of the pension reform and other important stakeholders to celebrate as well as usher in the strategic focus of the reform as it transits into the next decade.
