Ten directors of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in charge of various departments have formally retired after reaching the obligatory retirement age of 60 years old, while some had to retire after attaining 35 years in service.
This was made known on the INEC official data on Sunday.
INEC National Commissioner, Prof. Mohammed Adams, congratulated the directors on their retirement during the send-off ceremony on Sunday in Abuja.
“As you retire you shouldn’t at any time worry yourself about the past, but the future.
“Don’t think this is the end of the road. This is the beginning of another journey in your lives because you are all professionals in your respective fields,” he said.
Adams urged them to spend their retirement years doing meaningful work that would pay well.
He told active-duty personnel not to be afraid of retirement, but to carve out a niche for themselves in whatever capacity they found themselves.
“We should be happy with whatever position you find yourself; be grateful to God and create a niche for yourself,” he said.
