Babatunde Fashola, the ex-Minister of Works and Housing, revealed that his monthly pension as a former Lagos State governor is only N577,000.
During his guest appearance on the Arise TV show “Perspectives” on Saturday, January 20, Fashola refuted the assertion that he received billions of naira from the federal government after serving eight years as a minister.
“The benefit I get I think is N577,000 monthly pension from Lagos State. That’s all I get. So, in spite of all the stories that we got several billions of money (after leaving office), I’ve come out to deny that repeatedly. Well I don’t know how long it lasts, but all I know is that I get N577,000 per month consistently.”
When asked if there were other benefits from the federal government, he said “no.”
Responding to a question on if he could advise current public office holders, the former Lagos governor said he is not in the position to issue advice but admonished that they “should remain true and authentic” in their duties.
