Lawmakers Approve N100 Million Medical Retirement Allowance for Gov. Akpabio





BN recently reported that Governor of Akwa Ibom, Godswill Akpabio, presented a bill to the State House of Assembly asking to be paid N100 million every year for his medical bills, as part of his pensions package.

He also demanded that this pensions package should be available to not just him, but also to all elected former governors and deputy governors of the state.

The Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly has passed this bill into law, according to Punch.

In addition to the N100 million medical retirement allowance, all elected former governors and deputy governors of the state will also be provided with funds  to “employ a cook, chauffeurs and security guards for the governor at a sum not exceeding N5 million (or the equivalent of $50,000) per month and N2 million per month for the deputy governor,” and other allowances.

    Is he HIV positive? Does he need the money for ongoing treatment? The mind boggles. However,when it’s your time Mr Governor, you will move on to the great beyond just like everyone else. Utter greed!

    They are only interested in ruining the economy of this country . The judgement of God is upon them for rendering the country poor and implementing useless law that will not benefit the innocent citizen but their useless self.
