Saraki To States: Emulate Kwara, Stop Ex-governors’ Pension by Lumig: 3:14pm On Feb 28, 2018
The President of the Senate Dr. Bukola Saraki has called on states of the federation to emulate Kwara state and stop payment of pensions to former governors still holding elective or appointive positions.This is even as he commended the Kwara state House of Assembly for passing the bill to stop payment of such pensions.Saraki in a series of tweets on his handle, @BukolaSaraki said that he was indeed happy that the the chat he had with the Assembly Speaker, Ali Ahmed, had resulted in the passage of the bill.
In 2017, the Senate’s President had said that he already directed the state government to stop paying him pensions adding that he had refunded those that he had collected earlier.
I am happy that following my conversation with Kwara Speaker, @HonAliAhmad, two months ago, the Bill to suspend the payment of Pension to former Governors and their Deputies when they hold a Political or Public office was passed into law yesterday by the Kwara House of Assembly.
Moving forward, it is my hope that other State Assemblies take a cue from Kwara State and pass similar pieces of legislation into law.
The Kwara State House of Assembly on Tuesday passed an amendment bill halting payment of pension to former governors, deputy governors and other officers holding political offices after their tenure in office.
The passage of the bill followed the consideration of the report of the House Committee on Establishment and Public Service at the Committee of the Whole House sitting in Ilorin. The motion for the passage of the bill was moved by the Deputy House Leader, Segilola Abdulkadir and was unanimously adopted by members.
The Deputy Speaker, Matthew Okedare, who presided over the plenary, directed the Clerk of the House, Alhaji Mohammed Katsina, to prepare clean copy of the bill for governor’s assent.
The bill, which was forwarded to the House by Gov. AbdulFatah Ahmed, sought to review the existing law where payment of pension for former governors and deputy governors after their tenures would be suspended. https://www.vanguardngr.com/2018/02/saraki-states-emulate-kwara-stop-ex-governors-pension/

After benefiting from the scheme for 7 years? Not forgetting that you are still going to receive pension as ex-president of the Senate.

If you want me to take you serious, let your NASS pass the same bill stopping pensions and allowances for former presidents, VPs, Senate Presidents and Federal House Speakers. After all, you guys earn in 4 years what thousands of civil servants could earn in 35 years.

Whoever believes this man initiated this move is a big mugu. It was when his case started with CBT(false asset declaration) some investigation Journalist exposed that he was still collecting Pension as a former governor of Kwara state. That was when the Kwara state Govt. decided to stop it. It's not like they don't know it's not right or unlawful. They are only trying to stop other looters from looting more than them that's why he is speaking against it now

I'm imagining how much is being spent monthly on ex governors nationwide without owing them any month , whereas ordinary workers are being owed many months. Nigeria!
