The Imo state governor has stripped former governors of the state, including Senator Rochas Okorocha, and their deputies and ex-speakers of the State House of Assembly of pension payment and other entitlements after the state House of assembly on Thursday May 21, repealed the 2007 pension act.
The executive bill tagged “A bill for a law to repeal the Imo State governors and Speakers Pension and privileges law No 5 of 2007 (as amended)”, was supported by some lawmakers who agreed that it was necessary to do away with pensions of ex-governors and speakers, to make funds available for other developmental projects in the state.
Speaking after the 2007 pension act was repealed, Chiji Collins, the speaker of the house of assembly said that though they are the first victims of the law, the sacrifice is necessary for the development of the state.
Recall that in February this year; the Imo State House of Assembly banned any further protest in the state in the aftermath of the Supreme Court judgment that sacked former Governor Emeka Ihedioha from office.
