High powered voices in the pension industry have registered their endorsements of the newly constituted board of the National Pension Commission.
The formation of the board of the Commission was in the keep-in-view cabinet of the presidency until early this month, when it arrived at the Senate for the confirmation of members of the board picked from the six geo-political regions. After the dust settled on the issue of the emergence of a new Director General, the Senate late last week endorsed all save one commissioner due to inability to present National Youth Service Corps discharge certificate.
The managing director, Access Fund Custodian Limited, Mrs. Idu Okwuosa, put her tick on the prepared for work board and said: “The newly appointed board will go a long way to strengthen the industry.”
Access Custodian boss also said the coming on stream of the board, would address “some of the hanging issues.”
Okwuosa was confident that those issues which needed board attention “will be resolved.”
Another voice of endorsement was that of Ivor Takor, former PenCom board member, and executive director, Centre for Pension Right Advocacy, not only endorsed the board before the confirmation, also ticked the management team for moving the pension industry forward through effective regulation and supervision.
