The Ekiti State Government has started Contributory Pension Scheme for 6,700 workers that joined the state civil service between January 1, 2010 till date.
The state has distributed allocation letters to 13 Pension Fund Administrators as part of the process to kick off the scheme.
Speaking in Ado Ekiti at a meeting with the Chief Executives of the 13 PFAs, the state Head of Service, Dr. Olugbenga Faseluka, said the meeting was to interact on the smooth and seamless take-off of the scheme.
He urged the PFAs to support the state in the smooth running of the CPS and to discharge their corporate social responsibility.
“As stakeholders, your modest contributions in the area of Information and Communication Technology, training and sensitisation programmes, operational vehicles, computers, office furniture, and equipment will be highly appreciated.”
Faseluka explained that the 13 PFAs earlier appointed by the immediate past administration were retained in the spirit of fairness, just and equity.
