Lagos Lawmakers Oppose Stoppage Of Pension For Tinubu, Fashola, Ambode, Others | CABLE REPORTERS


Members of the Lagos State House of Assembly on Monday opposed the total scrapping of the Public Office Holder (Payment of Pension Law 2007), which ensures payment of pensions and other benefits to former Governors Bola Tinubu, Babatunde Fashola and Akinwunmi Ambode and their deputies.

The Lagos State House of Assembly on Monday read for a second time a bill that seeks to repeal the law.

The new bill which was debated on the floor of the House at a sitting presided over by the Speaker, Mudashiru Obasa, is titled ‘A bill for a law to repeal the law to provide for the payment of pensions and other fringe benefits to public office holders in Lagos State and for other connected matters’.

Ogundimu argued that the governors and their deputies and other such political office holders should be made to enjoy some benefits no matter how little.
