Saraki, alongside other political office holders, were accused of collecting governors’ emoluments, even after moving to new political offices.

This development was disclosed by the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) in a tweet on Wednesday, December 4, 2019.

Going by the court order, the Federal Government will recover life pensions collected by former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, former Akwa Ibom governor, Godswill Akpabio, amongst others.

The court also directed Abubakar Malami, the Attorney-General of the Federation, to institute appropriate legal actions to challenge the legality of states’ laws permitting former governors, who are now senators and ministers, to enjoy governors’ emoluments while drawing normal salaries and allowances in their new political offices.

The court adjourned till February 3, 2020, for a report of compliance with the judgement by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.

It would be recalled that SERAP had sued the government over its “failure to stop former governors from receiving double pay and life pensions”.

It also sued the government for failing to seek the recovery of over “N40 billion unduly received by former governors” who are now serving senators and ministers.
