He made this revelation following a court order that bogus pensions be recovered from former governors.
Amaechi pointed out that being a minister, it does not seem right to also collect pensions, instead, he advises that the money be used for development of the state.
See his post below:
I have never requested for or collected one kobo as pension from R/State Govt. If offered, I will politely decline & request that the money should be given to Rivers State pensioners. I do not believe that I should receive pension as ex-gov of R/State while serving as a minister https://t.co/dDfbQMdcRi
