He reiterated the resolve of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to the timely payment of accrued pension rights.
He said: “A total of 405 retirees RSAs have been credited in June, 2020 totaling N 978.5 million.
“However, in compliance with the Covid-19 protocols and to ensure safety of beneficiaries, the retirement Bond Certificates Presentation will not hold, but all Retirement Bond Certificates for June have been released to Pension Fund Administrators who will invite beneficiaries in their ten’s for the exit meeting and grant access to their RSA for the computation of their lump sum and monthly pension.
“We assure retirees of prompt payment of pensions and welfare. This remains the focus of LASPC and this government will continue to deliver tangible dividends of democracy in the state. “
