PTAD: Pensioners Laud Tinubu For Ejikeme’s Reappointment

Pensioners under the umbrella of the Nigerian Union of Pensioners (NUP) have commended President Bola Tinubu for reappointing Dr. Chioma Ejikeme as Executive Secretary for the Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD).

The Union’s position was disclosed in a statement signed by its National President, Comrade Godwin Abumisi on Wednesday.

TheFact Daily reports that Dr. Ejikeme was first appointed in August 2019 by former President Muhammadu Buhari as PTAD boss for a four-year term before her recent reappointment by President Bola Tinubu.

Although her reappointment was heavily criticised by some pensioners who are calling for a probe into her previous activities at PTAD, those under NUP has
distanced itself from such protest against her reappointment.

The NUP noted that the recent reappointment was one borne out of merit as Ejikeme had in the last four years rejuvenated the hopes of pensioners all over the country with her leadership style and professional disposition to the job.

The statement read thus:
“ I Chief Godwin Abumisi wish to commend His Excellency, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, President Federal Republic of Nigeria for the reappointment of Dr Chioma Ejikeme as the Executive Secretary (ES) of Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD).

“This sterling reappointment is indeed well merited and gladdens the hearts of the over two hundred and fifty thousand pensioners managed by PTAD, considering the diligent work she has so ably done for the pensioners ensuring the prompt payment of our monthly pensions and attendance to other challenging issues in the last 4years.

“I wish to state that in the NUP, there exists no objection to her appointment and any talk of protests against her reappointment exists in the hollow minds of persons obviously sponsored by arch-enemies of the Nigerian pensioner.

“I hereby call on all members of the NUP to rally around Dr. Ejikeme in order to ensure that she continues the good works of restoring the dignity of the Nigerian pensioner”, the statement said.
