State Governors Demand Fresh Bailout From Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday lamented that despite the various interventions by the Federal Government, there were still complaints and agitations by workers over unpaid salaries and allowances by state governments.





Buhari made his position known while addressing a delegation of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, led by the forum’s chairman, Abdulaziz Yari, when they visited him in the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

During the meeting the governors, through Yari, requested that the President ensure the release of the 50 per cent of the Paris Club loan refund so that the funds could be built into the 2018 budgets of the state governments.

The various interventions the current administration had extended to states included bailouts, Paris Club loan refund and budget support.

Some governors were alleged to have diverted part of the bailouts.

The President told the governors that the plight of workers in the states needed urgent attention as many could barely survive.

“How can anyone go to bed and sleep soundly when workers have not been paid their salaries for months.


“I actually wonder how the workers feed their families, pay their rents and even pay school fees of their children,” he said.

Sai baba, well said. How can a human being in the person of a governor go to bed and have a sound sleep when workers are not paid?

Another bailout? If Bubu accepts and actually gives in, I'll know for sure he has a "cut" in the monies these governors are stealing. How can they ask for more bailout funds when they've not accounted for the ones they were given? Let them tell Nigerians what they used monies that were first and foremost for payment of salaries, same salaries most of them haven't paid.

Say what you will about this man PMB.If these slobs called governors had put all these bailouts into good use.The country wouldn't be in this mess.
The governors have received more than 3 sets of bailouts.
What have they done with it?

Why won't they seek for new bailout when they use funds to erect statues.
