Ali Ahmad, two months ago, the Bill to suspend the payment of Pension to former Governors and their Deputies when they hold a Political or Public office was passed into law yesterday by the Kwara House of Assembly.
Moving forward, it is my hope that other State Assemblies take a cue from Kwara State and pass similar pieces of legislation into law”
