Former Governor Gbenga Daniel of Ogun State has said his successor, Sen. Ibikunle Amosun and the incumbent Gov Dapo Abiodun has not bought him a car since he left office.
Daniel also revealed the monthly salary and pension of Ogun present and past governors.
According to Gbenga Daniel, anybody who rules the state as governor receives N500,000 as monthly salary.
Daniel added that the governor, after his tenure, will continue receiving the same amount as his pension.
Daniel ruled Ogun State from 2003 to 2011. He was succeeded by Sen. Amosun, who later handed over to the incumbent Gov Abiodun in 2019.
In a viral video, Daniel said what obtains in Ogun State is different from some states where former governors get houses in Abuja, among other entitlements.
This, according to him, is too much for a former governor as he called for a cut in salaries of political officeholders.
Speaking on his entitlements as a former governor, Daniel, who was on a Yoruba interview, confirmed that he still receives N500,000 as his pension.
However, he said neither Amosun nor Abiodun has deemed it fit to buy him a car since he left office in 2011.
He said, “Most of the things happening at the National Assembly are not too bearable anymore, especially the money they receive. They should cut it.”
Asked if the same should apply to those in the executive arm, especially the state governors, Daniel replied:
“I don’t know how much other state governors receive monthly, but in Ogun State, it is N500,000 per month.
