Federal Government has not paid allowances to any of the country’s former presidents » since January 2016, an official has said.

According to the Secretary to the Government of the
Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal, former presidents
Goodluck Jonathan , Olusegun Obasanjo and others haven’t
been paid due to unavailability of funds.
Lawal made the disclosure on Thursday, November 17, during
a meeting with members of the Senate Committee on Federal
Character and Intergovernmental Affairs.
“There is a department responsible for the payment of former
Presidents. Presently, funds are not available in service-wide
vote to do that,” the SGF said.
“We are aware there was a protest in Bayelsa State that the
former President (Jonathan) was not paid and we have
explained that he is not the only one affected.
“Others affected are the interreligious council, traditional rulers’
council and so on. For some reasons, we have been writing and
writing but there has been no response. And there is presently
no money to pay them.
“The budget for this year’s Democracy Day was N33m and we
had to do it on credit; we have yet to pay. There are lots of
retreats which ought to be organised but there’s no money to
do any. The last time we got any release was in August,” he
added.
The lack of funds to pay the former presidents is believed to
be connected to the current economic crisis in the country.
