The minister said proof of the President’s commitment was made manifest in the various measures undertaken by the Federal Government since 2015 to reposition the nation’s workforce.

While pledging the commitment of the Federal Government to uplifting the nation’s workforce, Ngige stressed that the welfare of Nigerian workers was cardinal to the administration of the President.

He said with the Pension Transitional Administrative Directorate under the Buhari administration, Nigerian pensioners had never been more fairly treated.
