Wants Obaseki to declare state of treasury

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo yesterday faulted the recently passed pension law for former governors of the state and their deputies.

The law provides for a building worth N200 million in any part of the country for former governors and a house worth N100 million for former deputy governors among other provisions.

Addressing journalists in Benin City, the state chairman of the party, Dan Orbih also challenged the state governor, Godwin Obaseki to make public the condition of the state’s treasury to ensure accountability and probity, adding that this is the usual practice in other states.

“It is a shame to see that a former labour leader could go the way Oshiomhole has gone. A man who served the state for eight years and at the end has a guaranteed pay package of his full salaries for the rest of his life, three new official vehicles of his choice, two cooks, a personal assistant that will be paid by the state of not lower than level 10 and a secretary to be paid by the state.
