Ex-Governors’ Pension to be Cut Down by 50% by Lagos Assembly

The Lagos Assembly proceeds to cut down ex-governors’ pension by 50%.

The announcement was made on Thursday, August 5, 2021, in a statement signed by Mr. Eromosele Ebhomele, the Chief Press Secretary to the Speaker of the Assembly.

The decision was said to have been taken following the adoption of a report by the House Committee on Establishment.

The report also suggested that the law which states that houses should be provided for former governors in Abuja and Lagos be annulled.

The report further suggested a reduction in the number of vehicles to be given to former governors and their respective deputies.

The speaker of the house, Mudashiru Obasa suggested that governors should be given two vehicles instead of three as recommended by the committee.

The speaker also suggested that the amended bill should provide that the cars be changed every four years instead of the three years recommended by the report.
