Pension For All Campaign Stops in Oti Region

The outreach programme took place from Monday, 4th April and ended on Friday, 8th April. It was specifically, to encourage the informal sector workers in the area to understand and encourage them to join and actively participate in pension schemes to help alleviate old-age poverty.

The Oti Regional Minister Dr Joshua Gmayenaam Makubu and the Chief Executive Officer of the NPRA, Mr Hayford Attah Krufi addressed separate fora at Keti-Krachi, Dambai and Nkwanta. Members of the Local Council of Churches, the Muslims Communities, Traditional Leaders, Informal Sector Groups such as Driver Unions, Market Women, Ghana Hairdressers and Beauticians Association Tailors and Dressmakers Association, Ghana Hoteliers Association, the Ghana Enterprise Agency and other Individual self-employed attended.
