It is recalled that the PenCom appointed the Interim Management Committee on August 12, 2011 following a regulatory intervention in the PFA undertaken based on the findings of the Routine and Special examinations carried out by the Commission.


“The conclusion of the intervention was as a result of the judgement delivered by the Court of Appeal, Abuja Division on Thursday, 30 April, 2020, in the three Appeals filed by the Commission, the Attorney-General of the Federation and the PFA, against the judgment of the Federal High Court that nullified the Commission’s regulatory measures.

“The Court of Appeal’s decision upheld the appeals, thereby setting aside the judgment of the Federal High Court in its entirety. Thus, the judgment of the Court of Appeal validates the regulatory actions taken by the Commission in 2011,” the statement stated.
PenCom assured all clients of the PFA that the company has been returned to normalty.
