An Economist and Professor of Finance, Godfred Bokpin has urged the management of the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) to up their efforts regarding their investment.
He noted that the investments have been running in the negatives over the past periods.
He therefore urged the management of SSNIT to scale up their efforts in this area.
“This is where the management of SSNIT has to pay attention to, he said during the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) Investment Forum held at the University of Ghana on Wednesday June 29.
The Director of the SSNIT, Dr. John Ofori-Tenkorang refuted the claim the the investment are running into the negatives.
He assured that SSNIT is the best form of pensions scheme anyone can get.
“The SSNIT scheme is the best that you can ever get anywhere else as far as pensions is concerned, if you don’t join to contribute you are harming yourself,” he said.
Dr Ofori-Tenkorang further said SSNIT is going to to rollout a programme to educate the people and join SSNIT “because it is the best thing they can do for themselves.”
