Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Tuesday 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 deputy governors. ‎

Sanwo-Olu made this known while presenting the 2021 budget to the Lagos State House of Assembly.

The governor said the bill would be sent to the Lagos Assembly for legislative approval.

He said the abolition of pension for former governors and deputies will reduce the cost of governance.

“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,” Sanwo-Olu said.
