Outrage as Dickson Signs Bill for Bayelsa Lawmakers’ Life Pension

By  |  0 Comments

Crisis is brewing in Bayelsa State over a bill passed by the House of Assembly approving ₦500,000 per month post-service life pension to a speaker of the assembly, ₦200,000 to a deputy speaker, and ₦100,000 to members.

The swift passage of the bill by the lawmakers without conducting any public hearing angered most indigenes, who accused Governor Seriake Dickson of being the person behind the bill.

A source at the Government House said the governor may assent to the bill very soon, not minding the protest from the people of the state.
