Abdullahi Adamu Candido, the Chairman of  AMAC – Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) has signed into law a bill approving pension to the council’s past elected chairmen, vice-chairmen and speakers.

With the passage of this bill, past council chairmen would be given ₦500,000; Vice Chairmen, ₦300,000 and past elected speakers would get ₦200,000 yearly.

These past elected officials living would benefit from the welfare package which would cost the council more than ₦6 million per annum.
