Goje to Refund N200m ‘Executive Pension’

THISDAY ONLINE "About four months after he paid himself N200 million pension, the Revenue Mobilisation, Allocation and Fiscal Commission (RMAFC) has asked Governor Muhammad Goje of Gombe State to refund the money.
The Deputy Governor, Dr. John Lazarus Yoriyo, who also benefited from the largesse has also been asked to refund N100 million.
The Commission, in a letter to Goje, dated August 18, 2008 and signed by its Chairman, Mr. Hamman Tukur, said the payment of pension allowance to both of them while still in office did not have the backing of the law."
