Okova: Delta has no plans to give up pensions to former governors and their deputies
Delta Governor Ifeani Okova says his administration has no plans to stop paying pensions to previous governors and their deputies.
Okova, speaking Wednesday in Asaba this Wednesday, pointed out that his colleague from Lagos state, Babajide Sanvo-Olu, may have reasons to cancel them.
He said: “There is a law in Delta State that is ripe for governors and their delegates, and I don’t want to touch it.
We are not thinking in this direction, my colleague in Lagos may have reasons why he wants to repeal the law, but we at Delta do not want to go into details.
“I do not want to comment on the decision of the Governor of Lagos State. Each state has the power to make decisions about its own government. “
In an endorsement given to the Zamfara state government to manage its resources from the federal government, Okova said that the governors of the south and south will meet with Ibrahim Gambari, chief of staff of the president, General Mohammadu Bukhari (ret.), To resolve the issue.
