Governors to Nigerians: You didn’t vote for us to pay you salaries
The Nigerian Governors Forum NGF says they were not voted into power to pay workers salaries alone.
According to Yari, the lack of funds had hindered them from carrying out their responsibilities in other sectors such as health, electricity, education, roads, among others.
“I don’t think you people voted us only to pay salaries. You are looking for good roads, electricity, education and others. So, we can’t do magic. It’s only when we have the funds that we can do all those things,’ he said.
