Return the house Kwara State built for you - Femi Falana tells Bukola Saraki

SHARE:


Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana has asked Nigeria's Senate President, Bukola Saraki to return the pension he received as former governor of Kwara state to the Kwara State government as well as return the house built for him as a former governor.
Saraki said he wrote to the Kwara State government to stop his pension, after SERAP said some former governors, who hold political office, were receiving double pay. 

In a statement issued today, Falana asked Saraki to prevail on other former governors in the senate to stop receiving pensions.

“Since Dr Saraki has come to the conclusion that the collection of the pension is immoral he is advised to refund the pension he had collected from the Kwara state government since he became a senator in June 2007. He should also relinquish the house bought for him in Abuja by the Kwara state government since he is said to receive housing allowance as president of the senate".

The statement coontinued to say, 'However, while Dr Saraki is commended for demonstrating leadership by example with respect to the illegal collection of the ex-governors’ pension he should proceed to use his position as the president of the senate to prevail on the 20 other senators who are former governors and deputy-governors to stop further collecting pension from their state governments since they are currently receiving jumbo salaries and allowances from the national assembly.”
