According to the governor, an Executive Bill to repeal the law will soon be forwarded to the lawmakers for consideration and passage.

Sanwo-Olu said, “Mr Speaker and Honourable Members of the House, in light of keeping the costs of governance low and to signal selflessness in public service, we will be sending a draft executive bill to the House imminently for the repeal of the Public Office Holder (Payment of Pension Law 2007), which provides for payment of pension and other entitlements to former Governors and their Deputies.”
