The resolution was on the strength of a motion sponsored by six legislators led by Representative Hassan Shekarau from Kaduna state.

The lawmakers argued that the accumulated Contributory Pension Scheme, CPS, and the Defined Benefit Scheme, DBS, of more than four hundred billion naira is not only worrisome but has become an embarrassment.

After several contributions, the House resolved to summon the two Ministers to intimate it on steps being taken to save the country’s senior citizens from untold hardship and untimely deaths.
