Prove pension allegation or get sued, Fayemi tells SERAP

The Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Dr Kayode Fayemi, has threatened to sue the Social-Economic Rights Accountability Project if it fails to prove an allegation that he had been earning pensions from the Ekiti State Government.

SERAP, in a statement on Monday, had included the former governor of Ekiti State among serving public officials who are drawing pensions and other allowances as retirees.

Reacting to SERAP’s claim on Tuesday, Fayemi said he would sue SERAP if it does not make public details or proof of pension and any other remuneration he was alleged to be enjoying from Ekiti government since leaving office as governor of the state in 2014, or publicly apologise to him.
