Lagos State Plans to Undertake Census of Pensioners

 By Olumide Bajulaiye, Daily Trust (Abuja)

 September 9, 2003

The public relations officer, Lagos state civil service pension office, ministry of economic planning and budget, Mr. Jide Lawal announced the new initiative in a statement issued yesterday.

Lawal said the verification exercise would be held on September 22 and 26, October 12 and 13 and November 3, and 2 respectively.

According to him, the results of each verification exercise would be used to update the state government pensions records for payment in the subsequent month, just as the yearly pension verification exercise would be fashioned along the same pattern.

He explained that available statistics indicate that a large number of the yet-to-be verified pensioners fall into the category of pensioners resident outside the state.

He therefore, disclosed that a register had been opened in the office of the permanent secretary, civil service pension office, for relatives of pensioners' resident outside the country with a view to obtaining relevant information on the pensioners pending when a definite policy would be made on such category of pensioners by the state government.
