The party also asked the governor to concentrate more on how he is going to pay the salaries of workers in the state.
This advice was given to the governor as gathered by NIGERIA NEWS in a statement issued by the party’s Kogi State Director of Research and Documentation, Dickson Achadu, yesterday in Lokoja.
The party made it known that the continued casting of blame by Bello on past governors of the state is annoying and disgusting.
Parts of the statement read: “particularly overburdened by its sordid performance had deployed.” “falsehood and character assassination in an attempt to secure dubious public sympathy.”
“the recent attempt by the governor’s spokesman, Kingsley Fanwo, to justify the non-payment of salaries in the state on the alibi of inherited debts only “ended up playing the ostrich.”
“First, it was ghost workers that over bloated the wage bill. Then began the longest screening and staff verification exercise in the history of any people and now inherited debts!”
“This government should halt the charade, stop maligning the hard-earned reputation of others and face up to its duties.”
“Kogi people who are owed between 4 – 27 months are wailing and tired of excuses. The Bello’s administration should start thinking of how to account for the bailout funds, a balance of the N20bn bond, ecological funds, Paris Club refunds, federal project refunds and the monthly allocations it had frittered away in loose living.”
“Its death knell is close. Our great party, the PDP, and its two illustrious former governors cannot be intimidated. The mission to rescue fatherland is a task that must be accomplished.”
“We sympathise with the hard working good people of Kogi State and urge them to read between the lines and get their PVCs ready.” “For the clueless administration in Lugard House, defeat is imminent”
