Edo lawmakers approve N200m houses for ex-governors | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper

The Edo House of Assembly on Wednesday approved the construction of houses for former governors and their deputies which should not be more than N200m and N100m, respectively, in any location of their choice.

The approval was sequel to the consideration of a bill for a law to amend the existing legislation on the Pension Rights of Governors and their Deputies in the state.

Moving the motion for the consideration of the bill, the Majority Leader, Foly Ogedengbe, moved that House rules 20, 27, 42, 43, 44 and 45 be suspended, to enable the assembly to consider the bill.

The motion was seconded by the Deputy Speaker, Mrs. Elizabeth Ativie (APC -Uhunwode).


Considering the bill as a committee of the whole, the lawmakers amended the law to read that a governor and his deputy shall be entitled to a house each, at any location of their choice.

The new law, however, provides that the houses shall not be more than N200m and N100m, respectively.

  3. This is clear evidence that there is no recession. Executive salary still outrageous, Senate wants to spend 3.6bn on cars, Abia Governor travels to Ota to deliver made in Aba shoes to Obasanjo, Akwa Ibom pays $300,000 for Pele to come to stadium opening now these idiots wants 200m houses and they say we are in a recession. Na die we dey for this government oooo. Criminals from the cradle. And they want to ask Fayose how he spent Ekiti bailout.

  4. Thieves, after serving and stealing, awarding contracts to themselves, collected fat salaries all through, still due for huge pension and benefits, still the little that is left for the people voted to build house of 200M, even for past governors. What a heartless people. Instead of talking about a mordern housing for the people, electricity for the people, water for all Edo people...na fire go burn all the houses in Jesus name.
