Kwara Assembly Passes Bill Stopping Payment Of Pension To Ex-Govs And Deputies

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.

    1. This is good news. Do you know how much they earn and yet they can pay civil servants. If Lagos follows this step, then I know that we will be greater than U.S.A

  6. I think they should cut down on the pay, not outright stoppage, except for those who move on to hold other pensionable positions. So that they don't embezzle more to cover up for pension and gratuity.

    The sad thing is that, they pay these ex governors and co exorbitant fees for spending just 4-8yrs promptly, while civil servants who have worked for donkey years go through hell (from one verification to another) before they get their gratuity and pension, that is if they pay them at all. This should be the issue the law makers should deliberate on and resolve.
