Gov Otti signs law repealing pensions for past governors, deputies 



Abia State Governor, Dr. Alex Otti, has signed into law a bill to repeal the payment of pensions to former governors and their deputies, a law enacted by the previous PDP government in the state.

The Executive Bill, which was passed by the State House of Assembly on Tuesday, March 19, 2024, is now known as the “Abia State Governors and Deputy Governors Pensions (Repeal) Law, 2024.”

Signing the new law on Thursday, Governor Otti said government is not about self-interest, adding that self-interest destroys government.

“Even before this new law came into place, a lot of people who have followed our views in the national discuss understand that we were not going to continue the practice of paying pensions and allowances to this set of former government officials,” Governor Otti said.
