Former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has commended Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for his plan to repeal the Public Office Holder (Payment of Pension Law 2007), which provides life pensions and other entitlements to former Governors and their Deputies.
Okay.ng recalls that Sanwo-Olu had on Monday announced his decision on Tuesday while presenting the 2021 budget to the Lagos State House of Assembly.
Tinubu in a statement reacting to this described Sanwo-Olu’s decision as “a bold and courageous move.”
He said: “Congratulations to Governor Sanwo-Olu on the Y2021 budget which he appropriately christened” Budget of Rekindled Hope”. This audacious and enterprising budget will empower our people and begin to rebuild Lagos State.
“In particular, I would also like to commend the Governor for the plan to commence the repeal of the Pension Law giving pension packages to former governors and their deputies.
“This is a bold and courageous move by Mr. Governor and I wholeheartedly support him. I encourage all APC loyalists to do the same.”
