Kwara Speaker Ali Ahmad Commends Bukola Saraki for Initiating Passage of Pension Suspension Bill
Speaker of the Kwara State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Ali Ahmad has commended the President of the Senate and former Governor of Kwara State, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, for inspiring the process that led to the passage of the Kwara State House of Assembly Bill that is aimed at stopping the payment of pensions for political office holders in the State.
Earlier today, Saraki tweeted saying that he was pleased that following his conversation with the Kwara Speaker two months ago, the Bill was finally passed in the Kwara House of Assembly yesterday.
Dr. Ahmad stated that it was an inspiring conversation that he had with the Senate President that has made legal what was once moral in Kwara.
Both the Senate President and the state Speaker have urged other states to follow the Kwara example and end the practice of political office holders receiving pensions whilst still holding public office.
