Former Minister of Works and Housing and ex-Governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Fashola, has said that the only financial benefit he receives from the government is a N577,000 monthly pension as a former governor of Lagos State.
The ex-minister also said that he is not receiving billions of naira from the federal government, as speculated by some Nigerians, after serving eight years as minister.
Fashola said this on Saturday while appearing as a guest on the Arise TV programme “Perspectives.”
When asked if financial benefits were accrued to him as a former public servant, he said: “The benefit I get, I think, is a 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. I don’t know how long it lasts, but I only know that I get N577,000 per month consistently,” he said.
Asked if there were other benefits from the federal government, he said “no.”
