In the statement below, the Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, seems set to cut the cost of governance in the state.
Pension and entitlements of past governors and their deputies might be discontinued.
“Mr. Speaker and Honourable Members of the House, in light of keeping the costs of governance low and to signal selflessness in public service, we will be sending a draft executive bill to the House imminently for the repeal of the Public Office Holder (Payment of Pension Law 2007), which provides for payment of pension and other entitlements to former Governors and their Deputies,”
