A Federal High Court in Ikoyi, Lagos State, has ordered the Federal
Government to recover pensions collected by former governors serving as
ministers and members of the National Assembly.
The court also directed the Attorney General of the Federation and
Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami, SAN to challenge the legality of
states’ pension laws permitting former governors and other ex-public officials
to collect such pensions.
According to the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project, who
claimed to have obtained the certified true copy of the judgement, the verdict
was given by Justice Oluremi Oguntoyinbo following an application for an order
of mandamus in suit number FHC/L/CS/1497/2017 brought by the organisation.
