A former Governor of Lagos State and the immediate past minister for power, works and housing, Babajide Raji Fashola, has cleared the air on the supposed millions received as a former governor of the Centre of Excellence.
Fashola’s Reaction to How Much Lagos State Pays Him Monthly
Fashola who appeared on Saturday morning show ‘Perspective’ on Nigerian TV station, Arise TV said he only receives about ₦577,000 from the state.
In his words:
“The benefit I get I think is ₦577,000 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 ₦577,000 per month consistently.”
