National Assembly throws out bills to grant life pension, immunity for Senate President, Speaker, deputies

A bill that seeks to grant life pension to presiding officers of the National Assembly has failed at the National Assembly.

The bill is titled, “Bill for an Act to Alter the Provisions of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 to Provide Pension for Presiding Officers of the National Assembly; and for Related Matters.”

It was rejected during the voting process at both chambers on Tuesday.

The Senate President who did not state the number of  senators that registered simply said that the bill had failed "conclusively failed."

The House of Representatives also rejected the legislation. While 162 members voted in support of the bill, 163 voted against it. The bill required at least 240 votes to scale through.

Many Nigerians had kicked against the bill as they say Section 84(5) of the Nigerian constitution which guarantees life pension for all former presidents and vice-presidents, already costs about N7.8 billion annually.

A similar bill that seeks immunity for senate presidents, speakers and their deputies, was also rejected. It also sought to provide immunity for judiciary officers.

The bill, which is seeking to confer immunity on the heads of the two chambers and their deputies from prosecution, witnessed a poor number of votes during the voting process.
