The Executive Director, Stanbic IBTC Pension Manager, Nike Bajomo, has urged staff and clients to acquire relevant knowledge that will help them to live well in retirement.
Bajomo, who stated this at a one-day seminar/training organised by the firm for its workers and clients who were retiring soon, said it was important for the attendees to have a Will. She said it was possible for people to live well after retirement
She said, “We urge you to take advantage of the information the resource persons have given you. I assure you that we are here to help you to achieve your dreams. We want people to live their best life even in their post work era and assure you that we will guide you in every step of your need.
“On behalf of the board and the management of Stanbic IBTC Pension managers, I will like to thank you all for making us your pension managers and we are honoured to have the opportunity to achieve your retirement goals.”
Delivering a lecture on the topic, ‘Managing health and well-being towards retirement’, Dr. Ehi Iden, an expert in occupational Health and Safety Management, advised the participants to plan for activities that would give a boost to their lives after retirement.
He said that as pensioners, they must be careful of what they ate, and that what they ate would determine how healthy they would become. He advised the participants to eat healthy, especially foods with high protein and vitamins.
The doctor said, “Your life does not begin and end at work place; there is life after work and you must know how to manage life after work. You need to work with retirement in mind. Retirement is like moving from known to unknown. But when you prepare yourself well enough, you will transit properly and get the best out of the rest of your life.
“There is need for quick preparation for retirement based on psychological reorientation. So, what does the end work means to you? The end of work is to gain leisure. You cannot get leisure until you learn to put things aside for your retirement.”
