Lagos Pension Law

What Tinubu Said As Sanwo-Olu Vows To Scrap Lagos Pension Law

Lagos Jagaban, Bola Tinubu has declared support for the repeal of the state pension law by Governor Sanwo-Olu.



OpenLife Nigeria had earlier reported that Lagos Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Tuesday said that a bill on the abrogation of the law would be sent to the House of Assembly in a few weeks.



The Governor made the statement during the 2021 budget presentation to the legislature.


Reacting to the new development a day after, Tinubu urged others, with specific reference to All Progressives Congress (APC) loyalists, to do the same.
