Sanwo-Olu Seeks Law Cancelling Pension For Former Lagos Governors & Deputies

Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Tuesday announced to the State House of Assembly 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, Newsextra24 reports.

He made this known during his presentation of the 2021 budget.

“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,” Mr Sanwo-Olu said.

The move if granted will see an end to the payment of pension to former governors of the state including Babatunde Fashola and Bola Tinubu.
