“Today, we are creating this forum as a new entity that will help bind us together to create just one thing, a sustainable business ecosystem that empowers all those who are in business, all those whose businesses are in progress to recognize that just next door to them within the Adentan Municipality, there maybe somebody who has the solution to your problem. Reach out through the Assembly, we shall present ourselves as the help”, he said.

Every working individual can enroll on the scheme and enjoy all the benefits that comes with it which includes: Invalidity pension, emigration lump sum, survivors lump sum and the old age pension”, he said.
