I will say I got the shock of re­tire­ment but it was not long. Now, I am con­tented.

Daily Trust - - BUSINESS -

a liv­ing wage par­tic­u­larly when you have oc­cu­pied a cer­tain level. Al­though, it is far from that, you have to force your­self to calm down to the level you find your­self and which I say is a big psy­cho­log­i­cal prob­lem. It is dif­fi­cult to leave a re­tire­ment life. De­spite that low level in­come, I am con­tented with it.

What are the things you think gov­ern­ment can do to re­duce the prob­lems that re­tirees face in terms of pal­lia­tives?

There are sup­posed to be some pal­lia­tives suit­able for pen­sion­ers be­cause we grow with age. Nige­ria’s so­ci­ety is a so­ci­ety that should re­spect age and should re­spect the fact that as you have served this coun­try and you are get­ting all that, there should be some con­di­tion put in place by gov­ern­ment to ac­com­mo­date the fact that this per­son has served like cer­tain priv­i­leges that our coun­ter­parts from out­side give re­tirees. I am not say­ing we should du­pli­cate such priv­i­leges, but let us see what kind of pal­lia­tives we can work out so that peo­ple who have re­tired and reached a cer­tain level there should be happy.
