Controversy Trial Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, As Civil Servants Receive N2000 Salary Alerts For The Month Of February.

A huge political crisis is again brewing in Kogi State at the moment as despite the mandate by the Federal Government that workers salaries should be pegged at N30,000 as minimum wage, some of Kogi State Government workers on Friday, March 11, were paid a paltry N2000 as salary for the month of February.

As revealed by a Twitter user, @OlusayeP who said, “This is a salary alert from kogi state government to it’s workers. My mum happens to be a victim. This same man now stood up and said he wants to become the president of this country come 2023. Isn’t this wickedness at it’s peak?”

The Governor of the State, Alhaji Yahaya Bello had in February, approved the immediate implementation of the N30,000 new national minimum wage for the state workforce, with partial consequential adjustment and as the Secretary to the Kogi State Government (SSG), Mrs Folashade Arike-Ayoade, disclosed after an extensive meeting with the organised labour in Lokoja, the delay in the new wage implementation was due to the inability of the constituted working Committee to meet regularly, mostly due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

But the SSG, however, commended the organized labour for their understanding and patience so far, which she noted had resulted into the approval of its implementation, but this new outrageous payment of Two Thousand Naira, that is, N2000 for a worker in the state, has raised a lot of criticism against the Governor and his desire to be the president of Nigeria come 2023, with twitter users questioning what he would do a President, if he wasn’t able to manage a sall state like Kogi? 

We only hope this is corrected immediately and never allowed to repeat, else, the presidential ambition of the Governor, Yahaya Bello would be brought to question, as questions would be raised about his ability to surmount the huge challenges bedeviling Nigeria.
