She said that Nigeria had been able to move out of a deficit of pension fund to about N5.5 trillion of pension fund under the management of PenCom, adding that Premium Pension has been part of the success story in the industry. According to her, under the scheme, pensioners have been getting their benefits on time, noting that regulators and operators in the scheme had not been found wanting in the discharge of their fiduciary responsibilities. She said that there had never been any case of any sharp practices since the commencement of the Contributory Pension Scheme in the country.

The Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Premium Pension, Mr Wilson Ideva, corroborating the chairman’s views, said the certification demonstrated the company’s zeal to ensure the safety of its subscribers’ funds.

Ideva said that the certification met the expectation of its RSA holders and Legacy Pension Funds owners that entrusted their funds to the PFA “It further demonstrates our zeal to ensure the safety of your funds” he said. “For our board and management team, this is another indication and measure of our strong corporate governance anchored on global best practice.”
