You Won’t Believe What Former Governor Oshiomhole, Deputy Will Get As Retirement Benefits

The Edo State House of Assembly has amended the bill for a Law for Pension Rights of the Governor and Deputy Governor, with the immediate past governor, Adams Oshiomhole, and his former deputy, Dr. Pius Odubu, expected to be some of the beneficiaries.

The House, with the new amendment, approved the provision of residential buildings worth N200m and N100m for the governor and his deputy at the expiration of their tenures.

The bill also provided that the buildings could be sited in any location of their choice.
While passing the bill on Wednesday, the lawmakers suspended relevant sections of its rule.

The Speaker, Dr. Justin Okonoboh, also directed the clerk of the House to accord the bill a third reading and send copies to the Office of the Governor.

Okonoboh observed that the last two months had been eventful for the state with the coronation of a new Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare II, and the election and swearing-in of Godwin Obaseki as the fifth civilian governor.
