Obaseki assents to 2017 Budget, Pension Bill

Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has signed into law the 2017 Ap­propriation Bill and the Pension Bill to enhance the implementation of the Contributory Pension Scheme for workers in the state.
The governor signed the bill before the Speaker of the House of Assembly and other principal of­ficers of the Assembly in the Government House, Benin City on Wednesday.
Governor Obaseki thanked the legislators for the speed and diligence with which they worked on and passed the bills.
He said: “As you recall, last year, before Christ­mas, I presented this bill to you for consideration. We were very clear when we were putting this bill together that there were certain key principles and budget policies, which we showed, will lead to significant change in our economy”.
