Delta Former Governor Pension Bill: Read The Powerful Open Letter Human Rights Lawyer Write To Governor Okowa, Advice Him What To Do
Blast lawmakers says the bill on ex governors and their deputy governors is shameful and condemnable bill in the history of Delta State House of Assembly
Dr. ifeanyi Okowa
Please do not sign the bill passed by our shameless and dishonourable assembly men into law.
May I be permitted to summarize my letter.
I will endeavour to be brief despite haven carried alot on my mind these paste period.
In the year 2010 the Appeal Court, Benin division nullified the election of Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan and ordered a rerun and directed the to speaker of the house of Assembly Rt. Hon. Prince Sam Obi to discharge the functions of governor for only 90 days pending the conduct of the election.
In the first month of his assuming the office of governor though in an acting capacity he approached his most dishonourable colleagues for approval to borrow 20billion on behalf of the state. I was forced to file an action Suit w/74/2010 btw omemiroro Ogedegbe Esq vs. Rt. Sam Obi, DTHA & AG, Delta state.
When Dr. Uduaghan made an alarming transfer to James Ibori while in the UK prison We noticed a pension bill was smuggled into law without the knowledge of Deltans.
It is nauseating that the State House of Assembly could assemble state apparatus for the sole purpose of amending a law so targeted at an individual.
“It is sad that the governor and deputy governor pension and other benefits law imposed on Deltans is today amended for the sole benefit of one individual who served as a governor in an acting capacity for a less than 90 days period and plunged the state into a 20billion debt is been rewarded with life pension. It is sad, shameful and disgraceful.
You will end up as a colossal failure to assent to that law when states like Zamfara have nullified their law granting pension to governors who have seves the state for 4years we are giving pension to a man who merely acted as governor for 90 days. It is 3months for the records.
