-Imo state assembly passes law stopping ex-governors, speakers entitlements

 

On Thursday, Imo state House of assembly  repealed 2007 pension act which will stop ex- governors, their deputies and ex- speakers from receiving their pensions and other privileges.

 

According  to the sun, the bill was promptly passed into law after the lawmakers debated on it, and now awaits the consent of the governor.

 

Some lawmakers who spoke in support of the executive bill titled “A bill for a law to repeal the Imo State governors and Speakers Pension and privileges law No 5 of 2007 (as amended)”, 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.
