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

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, Igbere TV reports.

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

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.
