SERAP files contempt suit against FG over double pay to ex-governors

Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) at the weekend filed a contempt suit against the Federal Government of Nigeria and Abubakar Malami, the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice over “failure to recover over N40billion double pay and life pensions from former state governors who are serving as lawmakers and ministers.”

Justice Oguntoyinbo of the Federal High Court sitting in Lagos had in Nov. 2019 ordered the FG to “recover life pensions collected by former state governors serving as ministers and members of the National Assembly.”

However, the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari had failed to implement the judgment.
