A high-powered delegation from the Ministry of Defence and the Republic of Sierra Leone Armed Forces (RSLAF) led by the Minister of Defence, Brigadier (Rtd) Kelly Conteh, and the Chief of Defence Staff, Lieutenant General Brima Sesay, on Wednesday, 3rd June, 2020 held a meeting with the Director General and senior Management of the National Social Security and Insurance Trust at the Conference Hall of the NASSIT Headquarters in Freetown. The meeting was a follow-up to a letter addressed to the Director General from the Ministry of Defence, highlighting challenges service personnel encounter in their dealings with the Trust. These challenges, among others, border on the irregular update of members’ statements; restrained access to benefits by retired personnel; restrained access to benefits by beneficiaries of deceased personnel; and discrepancies in the personal details of personnel. 

The appointment of the human resource guru, the astute administrator and the people-focused Director General, Mohamed Fuaad Daboh, has brought an astonishing turnaround in the business of the Scheme. In his maiden speech to all the staff of the Trust, the no-nonsense Director-General emphasized his determination to redefine the image of a rapidly diminishing institution. He promised to focus this administration on the core business of the Trust, that is, operations and the payment of benefit. 

As part of the institution’s continued support  to the Government and people of Sierra Leone in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, the Director General of the National Social Security and Insurance Trust (NASSIT)  on Thursday, 30th April,  2020, donated  the sum of One Billion Leones (Le1,000,000,000) to the National Coordinator of the Emergency Response Committee. This auspicious event which took place at the Emergency Operation Centre at Cockerill in Freetown

In his bid to demonstrate his commitment to the wellbeing of his workforce and ensure camaraderie among his staff, the Director-General, Mohamed Fuaad Daboh on Monday 10th March 2019 paid a sympathy visit to two of his hospitalized staff,  Madam Aminata Foday-Kai, Secretary to the Deputy Director-General and Mr.  Momodu Kamara, an Inspector in the Government Operations Department and outgoing President of the NASSIT Staff Association. Expressing sympathy to the hospitalized staff, the Director-General said,

The National Social Security and Insurance Trust (NASSIT) has effected payment of Government Pensioners with a minimum pension amount of Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand Leones (Le 250,000.00) This is in fulfillment of the promise made by His Excellency the President, Julius Maada Bio, that effective January 2019, no Government pensioner would earn less than fifty percent of the National Minimum wage. The astute Director General of NASSIT in the person of Mohamed Fuaad Daboh wasted no time in transforming the President's declaration into reality.

In a bid to increase awareness on the Trust and deepen the knowledge base of our clients and members of the general public on the operations of Scheme, NASSIT has continued its intensive public education campaigns ranging from mobile sensitization, face to face public education and radio discussion programmes, trade fair and sports participation.
