Written by Morenike Adebayo on April 29, 2016
President Muhammadu Buhari has said that it was a matter of great concern to him that nearly two-thirds of states of the federation are still having difficulties with salary payments despite the bail-out funds provided to them by the Federal Government.
He made the remark while speaking at a closed door meeting with members of the Nigeria Governor Forum. To ameliorate the hardship being faced by workers, the President said that the Federal Government will strive to make more funds available to the states by expediting action on refunds due to them for the maintenance of federal roads and other expenses incurred on behalf of the Federal Government.
