Governor Idris Wada of Kogi state has called on President Buhari to urgently release the bailout funds meant for the state.

Wada also asked the President not to play politics with the disbursement of the bailout funds.

He said “For one, the President has consistently stressed the role of morality in governance and there can be nothing more immoral than the wilful deprivation of the right of our civil servants whose allowances and emoluments have remained unpaid owing to the economic downturn.”

 “We (government) called on President Buhari as leader for all, not to be swayed by the antics of this desperate politician who is nothing but the  author and finisher of the woes of civil servants in Kogi State.

“What kind of desperation will make a man to callously and viciously wage war against the release of resources meant for the people of his state? The Kogi State Government is of the firm view that the bailout fund is only a loan and not a presidential benevolence,” Wada said, in response to Prince Abubakar Audu’s statement, calling on Buhari to delay the disbursement of the funds to Kogi.
