The former Governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, has revealed the reasons why he gave up his pensions and allowances as a former governor.
He said having returned to public service for twelve years, the reason getting double pay is unnecessary.
The Senator, in an interview said, “I remember there was indeed a court judgement which SERAP got basically saying that people should not be entitled to double payment, especially if you now have another kind of public office. But even before then, naturally, a human being should not be entitled to double remuneration.”
“So, for me, as I said earlier on, for about 12 years I was not in public service, now that I am back in public service let me just make sure that I tidy things up and somebody just pointed out to me, and say why don’t I just remind the governor that I am not here and he should please stop the monthly pension that he was paying and hopefully when I am out of the Senate we check what the law says,” he added.
