Sanwo-Olu to abolish pension for ex-govs, deputies*

_November 10, 2020_

_Sodiq Oyeleke_

Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Tuesday announced his intention to repeal the Public Office Holder (Payment of Pension Law 2007), which provides for payment of pension and other entitlements to former Governors and their Deputies.

*He made this known while presenting the 2021 budget to the Lagos State House of Assembly.*

*Sanwoolu said the bill would be sent to the Lagos Assembly for legislative approval.*

*According to Sanwo-Olu, the abolition of pension for former governors and deputies will reduce the cost of governance.*

He said, “Mr. Speaker and Honourable Members of the House, in light of keeping the costs of governance low and to signal selflessness in public service, we will be sending a draft executive bill to the House imminently for the repeal of the Public Office Holder (Payment of Pension Law 2007), which provides for payment of pension and other entitlements to former Governors and their Deputies.”

Detail later…

Yes, but it won't affect dem too much.

People like Tinubu, fashola, and the rest have investment in the public sector.
Either they get pension or not, Lagos will keep paying this people.
This will only affect their deputies, they may not have investment in govt.
But nice move anyway

Inciting war or thinking of war in Lagos won't work ...


Tinubu and Fashola definitely don't need a pension, this guys are made for life


Wishing War on Lagos over repelling of Pension for Ex Governor while your state Governors haven't done the same is hate

Ambode has lost out entirely
This was his fear for not joining another party to avoid impeachment that will lead to no payment of his pension.
