Imo Assembly Stops Pension For Ex-Governors And Speakers, With The Law by ojsmscom(m): 10:35am On May 22
Imo State House of Assembly, on Thursday passed into law a bill which will stop past governors and speakers from receiving their pensions and other privileges.

The executive bill was presented by the Majority Leader of the House, Uche Ogbuagu and given accelerated hearing.

In an interview, the Majority Leader said the bill would go a long way in saving cost for the State.

According to him, the State loses about N1.3bn annually to offset the bills, a sum he described as humongous enough to pay workers’ salary.

He applauded the Governor, Hope Uzodinma for assenting to the bill, adding that Imo State will soon enjoy the benefits derivable from the law.

Uche Ogbuagu is the member representing Ikeduru State Constituency in the Imo House of Assembly.

That's a laudable step that ought to have being!!!

Politicians do not deserve to receive any pension cause they are well taken of while in office

They practically pay for nothing while in office

Every government in Nigeria should emulate this

The money from this should be visible in the welfare of the citizens

It shouldn't be siphoned through another contract scam

shocked


Rochas Okorocha and Ohakim Ikedi will be furious about this development.

Other states need to follow suit especially a particular state governed by an okpolo eyed cartel.

Commendable.
This is what lawmakers should do.

Imagine Rochas getting pension, and still collecting senatorial benefits, and later in the future, he will become a pensioner in the senate.

Other states and even federal law makers should follow suit.

Hope Uzodinma might actually mean well to Imo people, who knows?

Uzodimma wants to stop paying pension to Rochas and Ohakim. A month to the end of Uzodimma's tenure, he would restore back the pension for governors. Uzodimma is a confirmed high grade 419ner. A wicked scammer for that matter. He has also stopped paying all pensioners in imo state. And he is owing Imo workers since March.
