Bail out the economy, not states, former minister tells Buhari


DEJAGABAN.COM-Lame, an All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain in Bauchi, has urged governors to look inwards and generate revenue for their states.

The former minister, alleged that instead of using the bailout funds to pay outstanding salaries owed to workers, the governors diverted it to other purposes.

“As a president, you are not supposed to give bailouts to states; you are supposed to bail out the economy,” he said.

“Let the governors go and fulfill their campaign promises. They should look inwards and look for money because there were problems in the economy when they came in.

“What the president should have done was to look at which aspect of the economy he should revive.”
