The Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, says his administration has no plan to stop pensions of past governors and their deputies.

Okowa, who stated this on Wednesday in Asaba, stressed that his counterpart in Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, may have reasons to repeal theirs.

 

He said,

“There is an existing law in Delta State on what accrued to the governors and their deputies, that I don’t want to touch.

 

We are not thinking in that direction, my counterpart in Lagos may have reasons why he wants the law repealed but we in Delta don’t want to go into that.

 

“I don’t want to comment on the decision of Lagos State Governor. Each state has the power to make a decision concerning its governance.”

 

On the approval given to Zamfara State Government to manage their resources by the Federal government, Okowa said the South-South governors will meet with Ibrahim Gambari, the Chief of Staff to President, Major General Mohammadu Buhari (retd), to address the issue.

  1. People that only work for four year and even have other prominent post they occupied still get pension for their Previous office mean why those that truly serve the nation for 35 or 36 year suffer for so long before they get their pension some don’t even get it till their demise

  2. I don’t see the need to pay past Governors anything once they are out of office because their salary is huge unlike the teachers who are paid peanut at the end of the month at times they not paid for some months
