Confab Seeks Cancellation Of Severance Pay For Ex-Governors



The delegates to the on-going National Conference on Wednesday said governors and their deputies should no longer be entitled to pension and severance pay when they leave office.

The resolution might have been taken due to the pension laws passed by some states of the federation including Kano, Rivers, Gombe and Akwa Ibom.

The Conference also adopted a recommendation to make federal and state legislators operate on part-time basis.

These decisions were taken on Wednesday after the Conference adopted the resolutions of its committee on Public Service jointly headed by Ebele Okeke and Adamu Aliyu.

Under the new arrangement, states offering pension, life insurance and severance allowances to former governors and their deputies would be expected to cancel such perks and or align them with global best practices.
