He said workers should not be used as a scapegoat over the current economic challenge.

Kaigama said some governors recently sought for $3.2bn from the World Bank after collecting bailouts from the Federal Government to pay workers but failed to pay.

"We are determined to continue to fight for the emancipation of workers and the masses of our great country. It is a major cause for concern that some of our governors recently sought $3.2bn from the World Bank after recently collecting bailouts from the Federal Government. What we are saying is that any governor that cannot pay salaries should resign,” Kaigama said.
