The culture of erstwhile political office holder going home with juicy packages after the completion of their tenure is really worrisome and alarming.

For instance a copy of the letter from the Former Zamfara Governor, requesting for ten million naira as monthly pension, went viral on social media platforms

In a letter dated October 17, 2019, Yari addressed the incumbent state governor, informing him that he (Yari) is entitled to N10 million monthly as upkeep allowance, but that he has only been paid twice since he left the office.
