Tinubu finally reacts as Lagos Govt moves to abolish pension to former governors, others
Bola Tinubu, National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has shown support to the plan of Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu to abolish pensions to former governors, deputy governors and others in the state.
This was made known by the former governor of the state, Tinubu on Wednesday while tweeting via @AsiwajuTinubu.
He wrote: “Congratulations to Governor Sanwo-Olu over the Y2021 budget which he appropriately christened ‘Budget of Rekindled Hope.’
“This audacious and enterprising budget will empower our people and begin to rebuild Lagos State.
“In particular, I would also like to commend the Governor for the plan to commence the repeal of the Pension Law giving pension packages to former governors and their deputies.
“This is a bold and courageous move by Mr Governor and I wholeheartedly support him. I encourage all APC loyalists to do the same8.”
Recall that Sanwo-Olu, on Tuesday, said his administration is resolved to sending a draft Executive Bill to the State House of Assembly for the repeal of the Public Office Holder (Payment of Pension Law) in respect of former governors and deputy governors, with the aim of keeping costs of governance low and to signal selflessness in public service.
