The Kwara State Government has denied paying former governor of the State, Dr Abubakar Bukola Saraki, salary after he left office in May 2011.

Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Alhaji Isiaka Gold, in a reaction to claims that Saraki, who is presently Nigeria’s Senate President, was drawing salary from the state after he left office, explained that his last salary was N291,474.00 for the month of May 2011.

According to the SSG, “From June 2011, former Governor Saraki started receiving his pension which was N578,188.00 as other past governors in the country.”

The statement added that after the review of pensions of former political office holders by the State Pension Board, the former governor’s pension increased to N1,239,493.94 monthly from October 2014 to date.

Kwara State Government, therefore, dismissed as false and misleading the allegation that former Governor Saraki was receiving salaries after the expiration of his two-term tenure as governor of the state.

Alhaji Gold advised interested stakeholders to seek clarification from appropriate authority to avoid misleading the public.
