Nigeria: Kano Plans to Reviews Pension Law

Kano state government has unfolded plans to review the Pension entitlements of its state and local government pensioners, the State Governor, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso has announced.

Kwankwaso said "When we came in we realised from our records that there were people who are receiving N135 per month and we said that is not acceptable to us".

According to the Governor, "The state government decided now to increase that amount by 3,703 percent, meaning that no pensioner in this state, beginning from March 2013, will receive anything less than N5,000".
