The Nige­ria Po­lice Force Pen­sions Lim­ited has or­ga­nized a pre-retirement sem­i­nar to pre­pare of­fi­cers for their exit from ser­vice.

The North-east re­gional Man­ager of the Po­lice Pen­sion, Al­haji Abubakar U Tongo, while speak­ing yes­ter­day in Gombe, said the sem­i­nar was the first of its kind and ad­vised the of­fi­cers to make the best use of what they have learnt to start busi­nesses when they leave the Ser­vice. Al­haji Abubakar com­mended the Gombe State Po­lice Com­mand for suc­cess­fully host­ing the sem­i­nar which he said will as­sist the of­fi­cers in no small mea­sure. The state Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice, Mr Aus­tine Iwar, who was rep­re­sented by the Deputy Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice Ibrahim Mo­hammed, said the pro­gramme is timely and as­sured of­fi­cers that with the new im­prove­ment of po­lice pen­sion’s scheme, pen­sion­ers will re­ceive their retirement ben­e­fits im­me­di­ately they leave Ser­vice. Iwar ad­vised po­lice­men to re­dou­ble their ef­forts in the dis­charge of their du­ties.

He as­sured serv­ing per­son­nel that ef­forts are on to im­prove their wel­fare.
