Nasarawa State Governor Tanko Al-Makura,has made a strong case for workers to fashion out good retirement plans so as not to suffer at the end of their working lives.
Governor Al-Makura who was represented by the Commissioner for Information, Mohammed Kwara, was the chairman of the ceremony during the end-of-year seminar of the State House Press Corps held yesterday at the old Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa in Abuja,.
According to him, it is important to note that a good retirement plan starts the very day one is employed, knowing that whatever has a beginning has an end as thirty five or sixty mandatory years of service are certainly not eternity.
The guest lecturer and Chairman of Elumelu Foundation, Tony Elumelu, said retirement should not be synonymous with being tired or giving up as it should be a stepping stone.
He advised working journalists to pursue their purposes with passion, stressing the need to increase capacity in readiness for the next phase
Others who presented goodwill messages were Minister of Information Lai Mohammed; Minister of Transportation Rotimi Amaechi and Special Adviser (Media & Publicity) to the President Femi Adesina.
