The Gbawe-Mallam SSNIT District Pensioners Association has celebrated its first anniversary with a call on members to remain united.
The National General Secretary of the Association, Edward Ameyibor appealed to members to be each other’s keeper.
Mr. Ameyibor, who was the guest of honour at the event, said that he was happy to see members of the association in good health even in these difficult times in the country.
He mentioned that the national body of the association was in dialogue with SSNIT for a post-retirement health endowment fund to take full care of the health needs of all pensioners.
Mr. Ameyibor therefore called on the pensioners to continue to help each other and take care of the critically ill and sick among them.
In her address, Member of Parliament (MP) for the area, Mrs. Rosemund Abrah congratulated the pensioners for the impressive turn out which indicated their contentment in old age.
She urged them to continue to exhibit Christian love while eschewing tribal sentiments and tendencies.
On the Health Endowment Fund, the MP said she would liaise with the Parliamentary Select Committee on Health to improve the lives of the aged.
In his remarks, the chairman for the occasion, K. K. Moffat, who is also the Greater Accra Regional Vice Chairman of the association, congratulated the district for the milestone, calling for unity among members.
There were solidarity messages from Mamprobi, Korle Gonno and Russia districts and the Ghana Government Pensioners Association.
