In a formal send-off ceremony held on Sunday in Abuja, ten directors of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) overseeing various departments officially retired upon reaching the mandatory retirement age of 60 or completing 35 years of service.

He encouraged them to embrace the future with optimism and view retirement as the commencement of a new chapter in their lives.
“As you retire, you shouldn’t at any time worry yourself about the past, but the future. Don’t think this is the end of the road.
This is the beginning of another journey in your lives because you are all professionals in your respective fields,” remarked Prof. Adams.
Addressing the retirees, Adams emphasized the importance of utilizing their retirement years for meaningful endeavors that bring fulfillment.
He urged them to consider ventures that not only contribute to personal well-being but also make a positive impact on society.
While acknowledging the transition, Prof. Adams offered advice to active-duty personnel, assuring them that retirement should be embraced without fear.
He encouraged them to appreciate their current positions, express gratitude to God, and seek opportunities to carve out meaningful roles in their post-retirement lives.
