0

The National Pension Commission (PenCom) has initiated the process of reviewing the Pension Reform Act (PRA) 2014 in order to address identified challenges and public clamour.

A statement by the Head, Corporate Communications Department, PenCom, Peter Aghahowa, stated that the review is with a view to repositioning the Contributory Pension Scheme (CPS) and consolidate the gains of the pension reform for the benefit of Nigerians.

The statement noted that accordingly, and consistent with its guiding philosophy of consultation and the imperative of ensuring the conduct of a comprehensive and constructive review exercise, the Commission has reached out to seek the input of its social partners, pension industry operators, financial regulators and other relevant stakeholders.

“In 2014, which was ten years after the implementation of the Contributory Pension Scheme (CPS) in Nigeria, the National Assembly repealed the Pension Reform Act of 2004 and enacted the Pension Reform Act (PRA 2014) in order to address implementation challenges and introduce improvements to the Contributory Pension Scheme.

“However, some challenges were subsequently encountered in the implementation of certain Sections of the 2014 Act. The statement further said that within the last three years, there have been persistent clamour for amendment from individuals and interest groups as well as several legislative attempts on the amendment of some Sections of the PRA 2014,” the statement reads.
