Winners emerge in Premium Pension social media campaign
A leading Funds Administrator, Premium Pension Limited, has presented prizes to the winners in the social media campaign tagged, #Reward4DHustle2, held at its corporate headquarters, in Abuja.
Anchored by Alder consulting, the reward is part of the firm’s commitment to increase awareness on the benefits of the Contributory Pension Scheme (CPS) in Nigeria, especially among the youths.
While presenting prizes to the winners, the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Premium Pensions, Wilson Ideva, said: “This campaign goes beyond the quest for increased market share.”
He said the campaign led to increased traffic to these platforms, buttressing the dignity in work, and the imperative of subscribing to well-packaged pension schemes provided by the company if a good life in retirement is to be guaranteed.
Also, the Executive Director, Business Development and Investment, Kayode Akande, said: “It is a campaign to promote greater understanding of the workings of the Contributory Pension Scheme and also make it attractive to the youths.”
He identified the extension of the CPS to the informal sector, and the inclusion of the Additional Voluntary Contribution, as great opportunities for the expansion of the pension industry, and enjoined the winners on the need to secure their future through the scheme.
“It is not everybody that would work in government or the organised private sector. It is through individual efforts as expressed in Small and Medium-Scale Enterprises (SMEs) that the Federal Government’s drive towards the diversification of the economy can be actualised,” he added.
Anifowoshe Segun Johnson, a graduate of English from the University of Lagos, and the CEO of Glaberima Cuisine, won the grand prize of participating in a management course at the School of Media and Communications at the Pan-Atlantic University, and an international travel and N50,000 taxify voucher. Salawu Temitope, the first runner-up, won a laptop, printer and modem with three months subscription. Other winners were Mustapha Ibrahim, Yetunde Sarufat Salimon, Oke Charles Ifeoluwa and Nnakwe Johnpaul who won shopping vouchers ranging from N50,000 to N100,000.
Reacting to the award, Anifowose Johnson commended Premium Pension for the transparency that characterised the entire process, and expressed elation at the prize of attending a management course at PAU.
