Now, the question of social security for the unemployed, that is a very good step in the right direction. But the issue is that ,there should be a national social issurance number for all bonafide residence in Nigeria, that will help in the implementation of the programme, so that people can be well identified.
In any social security scheme, those who are physically challenge and the senior citizens are also considered, I should expect the government to also give attention to this. Social security benefits in any organized society stems from the three levels of government: the local government, state and the federal- the benefits are paid monthly by the contribution of the government in these three levels.
The senior citizens are not just those that had retired from employment of the government or private companies, but include anyone above the age of 65 . So in that case, farmers in the village , at 65 should qualify for pension.
If social security is well implemented, it will go a long way in reducing many anti social behaviour currently common in Nigeria.
I am sure, the Senate, house of assembly members and the local government council chairmen will consider making an enabling bill that will facilitate the social security programme.
