Senator representing Kogi West, Dino Melaye, has come hard on the governor of his state, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, for not paying the state civil servants salary for Christmas.
Many of the state workers were paid a couple of months ago when a tranche of Paris Club money was released for the state.
States workers were therefore highly hopeful that at least a month salary would be paid for Christmas out of the months of outstanding owed them.
Unfortunately, this was not so, hence, Senator Dino’s outrage which he expressed on his twitter page.
“Yahaya Bello Gov. Of Kogi State. Can you spend Christmas without giving your wives money? If you have any conscience left in you, pay civil servants of Kogi their salary. Forget the many months outstanding you are yet to pay. It is Christmas for God sake. Payyyyyyyyy,” Dino charged.
