SA charges retirees on State development

The Special Adviser, Bureau of Political and Legislative Affairs, Mr. Anietie Etuk has admonished retirees in the State to assist in nurturing younger workers in the service and to lend their wealth of experience to the development of the state. 

 Mr Etuk, who stated this when the Akwa Ibom Retirees Initiative paid him a courtesy visit in his office in Uyo, extolled the group for their unity, focus and dexterity even after retirement, noting that the present administration was passionate about the welfare of retirees and senior citizens of the state.

 While commending the group for supporting Governor Udom Emmanuel, Mr. Etuk enjoined them to continue in playing advisory role to the youths, women and government in an effort to protecting and preserving the ideals of democracy for a better society.

The National President of Akwa Ibom Retirees Initiative, Elder Ntiedo Ema said the group has more than 7,000 registered members made up of retirees from the federal, state and local government establishments in the 31 chapters across the State and Abuja.

Elder Ema noted that the group was formed by senior citizens who decided not to waste their experience and skills but to contribute their quota to the development of the society, stressing that their impact has been enormous since they came together. 

The National President appealed to the state government to consider their members for political appointment into local and state offices, boards and commissions.
