The lifetime pension would be for the Senate President, Deputy Senate President, Speaker as well as Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Senator Ekweremadu while speaking in favor of lifetime pension said,

“This has nothing to do with an individual. It is about the institution. Let us not politicise it. Nobody elected the Chief Justice of Nigeria, but he enjoys pension.

“But if we cheapen our own institution, so be it. Let us not make this a personal thing,”

Senator Stella Oduah and Senator Yerima also supported the suggestion while Godswill Akpabio and Senator Oluremi Tinubu kicked against the suggestion.

Senator Oluremi Tinubu asserted ‘I think the principal members have had enough’.
