The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has asked Senate President Bukola Saraki to return all pension he received as governor of Kwara State after becoming a senator.
The group welcomed the decision by Saraki to stop receiving pension as a former governor.
SERAP had written to the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami to probe ex-governors who are now Senators and are receiving pension.
While speaking with journalists on Tuesday, Saraki said he had written to the Kwara State government to stop the payment of such pension.
“No, I’m not collecting pension; the moment I saw that allegation, I wrote to my state to stop my pension,” Saraki said.
In a statement by its Executive Director, Adetokunbo Mumuni on Wednesday, SERAP said Saraki should either donate such pension to charity or back to the public treasury.
