Saraki, Others To Lost Pension As Abdulrazaq Moves To Stop Pensions For Ex-governors

Plans are underway to stop pensions to former governors and their deputies in kwara state.

Announcing this on Wednesday, the state Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq says he plans to approach the State House of Assembly to repeal the law granting pensions to former governors and their deputies in the state.

This is coming a week after the Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu made a similar move while presenting the 2021 budget of N1.155 trillion.

In a statement on Friday by the governor’s chief press secretary Rafiu Ajakaye, Abdulrazaq said he would send a bill to the assembly next week, requesting the lawmakers to immediately repeal the law.

The decision was in line with the governor’s campaign mantra and proof that he recognised himself as a product of democracy.

The statement reads:

The governor has listened to voices of the majority of the citizens opposing the pension law for former governors and deputy governors.

As representatives of the people, the lawmakers would exercise their discretion to call a public hearing on the topic to further harvest wider opinions on the topic.

However, the governor feels it is time for the law as it is to give way. He would rather the state commits the scarce public funds to tackling the question of poverty and youth unemployment
