The Secretary to Kwara State Government (SSG), Alhaji Isiaka Gold, on Wednesday, said Senate President, Bukola Saraki has returned all monies paid to him as pension back to the coffers of the state government.
The SSG made this known on Wednesday in Ilorin in a press statement issued to clarify the issue of Saraki’s pension being paid by the state government.
According to him, Saraki, who was a two-term governor of the state, has stopped receiving pension from the state since August 2015.
The SSG did not state how much was returned to government coffers, but said a letter dated Aug 20, 2015 by the Senate President also directed that money credited to his account for pension be refunded to the government.
“Dr Saraki requested that the payment of pension to his account be stopped and the amount already credited to the account be refunded to the Government, the State Government promptly complied.
“The Government not only stopped the payment of the said pension, the amount already paid into Dr Saraki’s account since he left office was deducted from the money owed to him as well as his other outstanding lawful entitlements,”
Gold added.
According to him, Saraki is entitled to the money he returned as provided in the third schedule, Paragraph D (i) of the Governor and Deputy Governor (payment of pension) Law, No. 12 of 2010 of Kwara State.
He said that apart from Saraki, other former governors and their deputies were entitled to pension as provided by the law.
“It should be noted that neither the Kwara State Government nor Dr Bukola Saraki violated the state pension law or any other law for that matter. The State Pension Law empowers the State Government to pay pension to former Governors of the State,” Gold stressed.
The SSG said the Senate President should be commended for his decision to abandon his legal entitlements. “It is the hope of the state government that this clarification will end all the controversy about this issue,”
he added.

How about he return all the money he got from selling Kwara's prized assets. If this man should become the president of this country, fingers crossed.
