The Governor said most state Governors in Nigeria have complained that they cannot pay salaries of workers.

He said this after having a closed door meeting with President Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Oshiomhole said “These issues were discussed yesterday (on Tuesday) and as usual President Buhari has been extremely supportive even though we all agree including PDP governors among us that the crisis that we are being faced was as a result of the misrule of the past.

“The challenge of today is as a result of the abuses of yesterday.

“But inspite of that, President Buhari has been very helpful. But for that, many states would have gone into crisis. I don’t know what you will call a state that is completely insolvent and bankrupt.

“We have to appreciate the President for the leadership he has provided, ‎I mean we all have a greater sense of security today than was the case around this time a year ago.”
