Recent events occasioned by the emergence of Corona Virus which has led to total lockdown/ stay at home policy globally has showcased and typified the realities of life at retirement for any working class citizens, whether self employed or as an employee in a public or private sector.
The outbreak of the deadly Virus christened Corona Virus, also known as COVID-19 (Christ Over Virus, Infection and Death 2019) has crippled social and economic activities of man, with major businesses and Investment all over the world been brought to a halt, while all known human activities have been restricted, in a bid to curtail the spread of the virus
Government all over the world is now currently faced with social and economic pressure of catering for its citizens, in a bid to cushion the effects of the pandemic.
In Nigeria, the government at all levels is already implementing the Stay at Home policy, while Lagos, Abuja, and Ogun State respectively have been put on total lockdown by the proclamation of the Federal Government of Nigeria. A nation-wide lock-down is imminent. A Lockdown entails a restriction of all forms of movements, total closure of all Businesses; disbandment of all forms of Public social gathering, Schools, Churches, Mosque, Markets, Transportation, etc, aside from the exclusion of few basics such as Food Market, Medical or related activities, etc. In all, the majority of Nigeria’s citizens like their counterparts in other climes, have been conditioned to stay at home as a top viable measure in fighting the spread of the dreaded Corona Virus.
Survival in this period for everyone is not easy. On a daily basis, people are confronted with the challenge of food, shelter, and other valuables of life. Why we, therefore, absorb the realities of the COVID19 events, it affords us an opportunity to behold the realities of life at retirement which shares similar features with the Stay at Home/Lockdown precipitated by Corona Virus.
Retirement in its ordinary meaning implies; the action of leaving one’s job and ceasing to work. The Cambridge English Dictionary alongside Wikipedia defined the noun(Retirement) as the withdrawal from one’s position or occupation or from one’s active working life. You can achieve retirement when you have life sources of income that do not have to be earned by working. The period of retirement or Post work era is ordinarily characterized by low economic activity, low energy, dwindling health challenges, constant and increase Stay at Home, fewer movement and consistent expenses or bills, etc. Note that, some of the characteristics mentioned represent our present reality in lockdown.
Many people choose to retire when they are eligible for private or public pension benefits, although some are forced to retire when bodily conditions no longer allow the person to work any longer (by illness or accident) or as a result of legislation concerning their position and lay-offs in some cases.
In most countries, the idea of retirement is of recent origin, being introduced during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Previously, low life expectancy and the absence of pension arrangements meant that most workers continued to work until death. Germany was the first country to introduce retirement benefits in 1889. Nowadays, most developed countries have systems to provide pensions on retirement in old age, funded by employers or the state. In many poorer countries, there is no support for the old beyond that provided through the family.
Today, retirement with a pension is considered a right of the worker in many societies; hard ideological, social, cultural, and political battles have been fought over whether this is a right. In many western countries, this is a right embodied in national constitutions.
In the midst of this, economic experts, human resources managers, and Industrial Labour Relations have argued that one essential key to survival and healthy longevity after retirement lies heavily on the issue of Investment. Green & Davies (1998) opined that employees and individuals with established Investment that brings financial gains and flow are more likely to survive financial hurdles associated with retirement than others. Investment here implies the action or process of investing money for profit.
Retirement era is one filled with many financial expenses,where-in the retiree needs to purchase and enjoy some basics of life. Often times, particularly in this part of the world, people tend to depend on their children for survival during retirement. The thinking is that having invested in their offspring, the said children should take care of them at retirement or old age, but this of course is not often the case due to certain human circumstances. Another section of the society chooses to either depend on a pension from the government and a few other major retirees look up to gratuities from private business organizations worked for such as Multinationals Oil Companies. The issue of pension and gratuity in Nigeria is however a popular knowledge characterized by fraud and the constant inability of government at all levels to pay such benefits. We have seen cases where retirees or pensioners from the public sector take to the streets in protest of the absence of such pay while some retirees even die without receiving a dim. This is therefore neither viable nor reliable source of living at retirement.
There is, however, another category members of the society who live and sustain their retirement days through their personal investment in businesses which now brings a huge daily return for their investment. This category of people enjoys life to the fullest base on their well thought out investment.
