Kwara Government To Scrap Pension For Ex-Govs, Deputies

Just like Lagos state, Kwara state governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, Friday said that he would send a bill to the State House of Assembly to revoke the law awarding pension to former governors and their deputies.

Abdulrazaq who revealed this in a series of tweets, noted that the state needs the resources to improve human capital development.

“In line with our campaign mantra and the yearnings of our people, next week I will be sending a bill to the State House of Assembly to revoke the law awarding pension packages to former governors and former deputy governors in Kwara State.

“Our state needs all the resources it can get to improve our human capital development. I believe our limited resources are better spent on tackling the question of poverty and youth unemployment”, he said.
