“On the issue of salaries, PDP caused most of the problems we face. They took bonds and they were expending it on white elephant projects. We did not collect N30bn bailout, we took N20bn,” Kingsley Fanwo, the governor’s spokesman told Channels TV.

“What we needed to pay salaries and pensions projected N50.8bn which was approved by president Buhari. From the N50.8bn, we have accessed only N20bn, remaining N30.8bn, that is the reason why we are still owing salaries.”
