SEC urges Nigerians on financial inclusion

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on Thursday advised Nigerians to key into the financial system by investing in the capital market.

The Director-General, Ms Mary Uduk, gave the advice while sensitizing residents of Gwagwalada on the need for financial inclusive at a forum to mark the World Investors Week in Gwagwalada, FCT.

Ms Uduk, represented by Mr Francis Okafor, Head of SEC Investment Education, urged Nigerians to invest their money wisely instead of keeping them in unsafe places.

Mr Okafor said that the SEC had put measures in place to ensure that investors received their dividends as at when due.

In her remark, Micro Pension Department, National Pension Commission, Mrs Obiangeli Okosi, urged all Nigerians to key into the micro pension scheme.

She said the scheme was designed to accommodate all Nigerians including businessmen, women and artisans.

Okosi said the scheme did not require the contributor to pay a fixed amount monthly like the contributory pension and it was open to Nigerians from 18 years of age.
