Governor Okowa

Delta State Governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, has said that his administration has no plans to stop the pensions of past governors and their deputies in the state.

This is coming at a time when Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu moved to stop the pensions of past governors and their deputies.

Okowa said in Asaba on Wednesday that the Lagos State Government might have reasons to repeal its pension law.

“There is an existing law in Delta State on what accrued to the governors and their deputies, that I don’t want to touch.

“We are not thinking in that direction; my counterpart in Lagos may have reasons why he wants the law repealed but we in Delta don’t want to go into that.

“I don’t want to comment on the decision of Lagos State governor. Each state has the power to make a decision concerning its governance,” he added.
