Buhari To Recalcitrant Governors: Pay Workers Salaries With Paris Refund

President Muhammadu Buhari Thursday reportedly told state governors that they should prioritise payment of workers salaries, pensions and gratuities when they receive the second tranche of Paris loan refund.

 

“I will not rest until I address those issues that affect our people. One of these basic things is the issue of salaries. It is most important that workers are able to feed their families, pay rent and school fees, then other things can follow,” Buhari  said, according to a statement by  the president’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu.

It will be recalled that reports were rife last week that the Nigeria Governors Forum may have used fictitious consultants to divert some of the money from the Paris Club contrary to the advice of President Muhammadu Buhari to offset salary arrears of workers in their respective States.

 “It is most important that workers are able to feed their families, pay rent and school fees, then other things can follow,” Buhari said.

He said that he would remain relentless in the pursuit of the interest of the Nigerian people at all times.
