A controversial pension law for former governors of Lagos state and deputies is at the brink of being abolished.

This was made public by Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Tuesday.

Sanwo-Olu announced his intention to repeal the Public Office Holder (Payment of Pension Law 2007), which provides for payment of pension and other entitlements to former Governors and their Deputies.

The governor made this known while presenting the 2021 budget to the Lagos State House of Assembly.

Most Nigerian states pay pensions to their former governors and their deputies. This, most Nigerians say is a waste of scarce public resources.
