Mr Boyoko represented by the functioning Permanent Secretary Directorate of Establishment and pensions, Mrs Felicia Ohwofasa said the State Government was keen on ensuring a better living standard for its pensioners and would not relent in taking the necessary steps to cushion the effect of the down turn in their economic status.
Mr Bayoko said to achieve that goal; measures have been put in place to alleviate the plight of pensioners of the State Civil Service to enhance their productivity even in retirement.
The Executive Secretary Bureau for State Pension, Mr Lawson Efenudu said the Directorate was keen on keeping the pensioners abreast with the happenings in the society as well as helping them enhance their economic well-being especially after retirement.
Mr Efenudu assured the participants that the Bureau for State Pensions would continue to look out for them after retirement, and seek ways to ensure that whatever was due them from the State Government was not held back.
The Chairman of the Delta State Retirees, Mr Isaiah Agbakan thanked the Bureau for organizing the seminar towards helping them maximize their retirement benefits.
The retirees at the seminar held at separate locations in Asaba and Warri were taken through several lectures including procedures for Assessing payments in the Contributory Pension Scheme amongst other related topics.
