Governor-members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have called on the Federal Government to come to the aid of states that have been unable to pay their workers.

The governors, at a meeting in Abuja on Tuesday, June 16, 2015, urged the FG to create a bailout plan for the bankrupt states.

“On the economy of the nation, we are concerned and worried by the dwindling revenue of the states which today has affected negatively on the people and the matter has become so serious that urgent action must be taken for a bailout for the state as things are not getting better,” spokesperson and Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha said.

“We have realized that what we are going through today is as a result of poor management of our nation’s economy in the recent times and in fact the APC government has come to meet a near empty treasury and this is worrisome, not only to us as Governors but I think the entire nation,” he added.

All the governors in the country are also expected to meet in Abuja on Wednesday, June 17, 2015, under the umbrella of the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF).
