The national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has reacted to the plan of the Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to abolish pension package for former governors and their deputies. The APC leader commended Governor Sanwo-Olu over the plan, adding that he “wholeheartedly” supported him.
Tinubu who is a former governor of Lagos made this known in a thread of tweets posted via his official Twitter page on Wednesday, November 11.

The tweet reads in part:
“In particular, I would also like to commend the Governor for the plan to commence the repeal of the Pension Law giving pension packages to former governors and their deputies.
