Kwara may scrap pension package for governors


A Civil Society Organisation, Elites Network for Sustainable Development, ENetSuD, has asked the Kwara State House of Assembly, KWHA, to repeal the Kwara State Governor and Deputy Governor (Payment of Pension) Law 2010.
The letter which was jointly signed by the Coordinator and Director of Legal Services of the organisation, Alagbonsi Abdullateef and Lukman Raji respectively, was voluntarily supported by 263 Kwarans who joined the advocacy.
ENetSuD urged KWHA to repeal the law and outlaw the payment of pension, gratuity and other allowances to past governors and deputy governors other than the statutory 300 percent severance allowance provided for by the Revenue Mobilization Allocation and Fiscal Commission, RMAFC, Act.
ENetSuD also urged the Assembly to allow the provision of personal staff and health insurance to past governors and deputy governors on compassionate ground as an appreciation of the services rendered to the state.
