MWUN boss urges stakeholders to comply with laws guiding NSITF
President-General of the Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN), Adewale Adeyanju, has urged concerned stakeholders to comply with all the existing law guiding the operations of the Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF).
He stated that the move was necessary due to the benefits attached to the sector, including training for workers in the dockworkers, Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), shipping and seafarers’ branch. He said this on the sideline of his appointment into the Board of the NSITF by President Muhammadu Buhari recently.
Adeyanju was appointed alongside 12 other members, with Austin Enajemo-Isire, as chairman. Adeyanju, who expressed appreciation to President Buhari for the opportunity given to him to serve on the NSITF Board, said it was an opportunity for maritime workers to benefit from the scheme.
Noting that the trust workers in the union have for him is still intact, Adeyanju promised to make sure the union work hard to ensure they get their benefit.
He said some of the agencies like the NPA and the dockworkers employers have been compliant.”This is a call to duty. It is an opportunity for me to go in there and ensure that the sector which has not been benefiting from the NSITF scheme get all the necessary benefit.“We will not let them down, we will continue to fight for their right,” he said.
