N10m Upkeep Demand:Zamfara Assembly to Amend Law
Following uproar over recent demands for the payment of N10 million Naira upkeep allowance by former Zamfara state governor,AbdulAziz yari,the State Assembly is contemplating amendment of the law to delete the provision while retaining pension payment.
Checks showed that the leadership of the state Assembly is consulting the Governor ,Dr Bello Muhammed on appropriate steps to amend the law.
The decision to amend the law was based on discovery that the law was hurriedly amended under Yari governorship to include such obnoxious provisions like the upkeep allowance .
It was gathered that the original act contained provisions for only pension as is the practice in other states of the federation.
