Former Kano State Governor, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso has complained that he has not been paid his pension entitlements for six years, claiming the act was intentional by the Kano State government.
Kwankwaso also said the state government did not build house or office for him, which is provided in a law that every former governor should be provided either an office or a house as one of his benefits.
He made the allegations in a lengthy interview with the BBC Hausa service in which he touched on a number of issues, particularly Nigerian politics.
The former governor said he is the only one who served as governor in the state and did not enjoy the benefits.
However, Senator Kwankwaso said it was likely because he was part of the opposition that made him be treated in that manner.
“If I were with them, I would have to be paid my benefits or my monthly pension. And I agree it happened because I am part of the opposition. So let them go and enjoy it,” Senator Kwankwaso said
