Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has revealed that he has no issues with Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, after he made a move to abolish the payment of pensions and all entitlements to former Governors and deputies of the state.
On Tuesday, November 10 Governor Sanwo-Olu said he intends to repeal the payment of pensions to public office holders in a bid to cut down the cost of governance in the state.
Tinubu, who governed Lagos from 1999 to 2007 and on whose watch the pension law rolled into effect, has commended Sanwo-Olu for the audacity to stop the pensions and entitlements.
Congratulations to Governor Sanwo-Olu over the Year 2021 budget which he appropriately christened ‘Budget of Rekindled Hope. This audacious and enterprising budget will empower our people and begin to rebuild Lagos State,” Tinubu stated.
“In particular, I would also like to commend the governor for the plan to commence the repeal of the Pension Law giving pension packages to former governors and their deputies.
“This is a bold and courageous move by Mr. Governor and I wholeheartedly support him. I encourage all APC loyalists to do the same.” He added.
