Buhari Allegedly Against Extravagant Pension For Ex-Governors?

share on:

The President-elect of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), will be leading a campaign to abolish the pension laws for governors enacted by many states of the federation.

According to Vanguard publication, the proposal by the incoming president is based on what sources close to him affirm as the incongruity of the laws under the country’s socio-economic environment.

The greater populace of the nation’s 36 state Houses of Assembly have enacted generous pension entitlements for governors that in many cases provide 100 per cent pay for the incumbent governors buildings, generous medical allowances for them and their family members and annual holiday provisions, all of which are to last for life.

It didn’t end there, as provisions in the pension allowances are also made for staff, security and vehicles that are renewable every three or four years.

However, the president-elect doesn’t seem to buy the idea as a review of the pension for former governors was first publicly declared few days to the presidential election at the All Progressives Congress, APC, retreat in Owerri, Imo State.

According to a certified source disclosure, Buhari told the governors that there was no way Nigeria could survive under the financial weight of the pensions that had been earmarked for governors.

He was said to have described the pension laws as enacted by states controlled by APC and PDP governors as scandalous.

The source said “he was very blunt about it and said that it was something that was going to be done immediately, especially because it is not something that can be sustained.

“The feeling was that not only was it wrong and morally unconscionable, but that it was not something that should be encouraged and he was appealing to them that it should be changed.”

  1. Can’t wait for May 29th. Haven’t been this excited about a new government before. I pray God gives him strength to face the undoubted fight back from the corrupt and greedy who have brought the country to its knees.
