Saraki and AbdulRazaq

By Kazeem Ugbodaga

Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq will next week send a bill to the State House of Assembly requesting the lawmakers to immediately repeal the law awarding pension packages to former governors and former deputy governors.

Former Senate President, Bukola Saraki is one of those to be affected by the law. He was a two-term governor in Kwara State.

“The Governor has listened to voices of the majority of the citizens opposing the pension law for former governors and deputy governors.

“In line with his campaign mantra and as a product of democracy himself, he will be sending a bill to the House of Assembly next week requesting them to repeal the law,” according to a statement by his Chief Press Secretary Rafiu Ajakaye.

“As representatives of the people, the lawmakers would exercise their discretion to call a public hearing on the topic to further harvest wider opinions on the topic. However, the Governor feels it is time for the law as it is to give way.

“He would rather the state commits the scarce public funds to tackling the question of poverty and youth unemployment,” he said.
