Edo State House of Assembly on Wednesday approved the construction of a residential building worth N200 million as terminal benefit for the immediate past governor of the state, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole

Also approved is a house worth N100 million for the immediate past deputy governor, Dr. Pius Odubu.

Adams Oshiomhole and Pius Odubu, completed two tenures of eight years as governor and deputy governor of Edo state respectively last Saturday.

Other benefits to be enjoyed by the governor are a pension for life at a rate equivalent to 100 percent of his last annual salary in addition to an officer not above salary grade level 12 as Special Assistant, a personal secretary not below grade level 10 who shall be selected by the former governor from the public service of Edo state.

He is also entitled to have two cooks, two armed policemen as security, three vehicles to be bought by the State Government and liable to be replaced every five years, three drivers who shall be selected by the former governor and paid by the state government as well as free medical treatment for the governor and his immediate family.

On the other hand, the deputy governor is entitled to 100 percent of his last annual salary as pension, a personal staff not above salary grade level 12 as Special Assistant, a personal secretary not below grade level 09 who shall be selected by the former deputy governor from the public service of the state, a cook, two policemen as security.

    Even you Comrade Governor? Clearly as things change, they stay the same.

  • EdBaz

    The cost of this corruption is more than the N200m house because Oshiomole had to bribe the house to pass this bill.

    Why couldn’t he build house from his salary or did he spend all on his new wife? This is the real change.

    Would the state too build houses for each of the state workers when they too retire?

    God is watching. legalisation of corruption

  • gboyegaa

    That is corruption being legalised.
    What should the state build a house for him? He earned his salaries for the years he was in government so he should build a house by himself if he needs one.
    This is a state that is owing pensioners. Are we totally sick and crazy in Nigeria? None of the idiots in the house remembers pensioners are being owed.
    Even if they have paid all their pensioners, can they not pump this money into their universities and other schools?

    • mgbonese

      I agree with you, corruption is fully legalized in Nigeria.
