The Governor That Couldn’t Pay Salaries, Begins Building N4.6bn Bridge 7 Days To End Of Tenure

The Kogi State governor, Captain Idris Wada, on Tuesday, explained the reason behind the inability of his administration to pay its workers, saying government had been depending on overdraft and other facilities from banks to meet its obligations to the workers.

The governor said it became difficult for government to continue paying the salaries when the banks stopped granting it the facilities.

Wada said this in Lokoja, the state capital, during the official inauguration ceremony of the construction of N4.6 billion fly-over bridges at the Ganaja junction in the town.

According to the governor, government had met the organised labour leaders over the non-payment of the workers’ salaries, blaming the situation on the dwindling allocation of the collective funds coming to the state from the Federation Account.

Wada stated that the banks stopped granting the facilities to facilitate the payment of workers salaries because of the recent political development in the state.

He added that government was stil owing the banks of some arrears of overdraft, resulting from servicing workers salary in the past.

“I will continue to make efforts for workers to be paid before I leave office. Kogi State is bigger than an individual or anybody. It will be there when we are gone,” he said.
