Police officers prepare for retirement
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.
