Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project on Sunday urged the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami, to institute legal action to recover over an alleged N40bn earned in double payment, by former Nigerian state governors, who are now either senators or ministers.

SERAP made the appeal in an open letter to Malami on Sunday, saying the former governors and their deputies are drawing the dubious payments based on retirement and pension laws crafted by them while in office.

It alleged that Senate President Dr. Bukola Saraki (Kwara); Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso (Kano); Kabiru Gaya (Kano); Godswill Akpabio (Akwa Ibom); Theodore Orji (Abia); Abdullahi Adamu (Nasarawa); Sam Egwu (Ebonyi); Shaaba Lafiagi (Kwara), are among former governors receiving double emoluments and large severance benefits from their states.
