Kogi Guber: PDP vows to clear workers salaries if voted

By Sylvanus Okpe

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its governorship candidate, Engr. Musa Wada has disclosed that it had worked out a strategic template for swift payment of arrears of all salaries and pensions malevolently owed Kogi workers by Governor Yahaya Bello if elected in the November 16th election.

The party made this disclosure through a statement released national publicity, Mr Kola Olagbondiyan.

The PDP stated that at the top of it’s rescue mission is the immediate payment of the salary and pension arrears, promising that this will run simultaneously with its job creation initiatives and direct empowerment of citizens in various income generating sectors for greater competitiveness, productivity and personal prosperity which was denied them by Governor Bello and the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The party during the interractive session with a group of investors from Kogi state on Wednesday in Abuja, noted that the party and its governorship candidate have finalized plans to hit the ground running in executing a robust economic recovery agenda.

Ologbondiyan revealed that the party was already in critical discussions with captains of industries, investors, professionals and experts in various fields from Kogi state and beyond on strategies to effectively and transparently transform the state, revamp the economy and empower the people.

“Our primary focus is the welfare and personal prosperity of the Kogi people. Kogi state is blessed with abundant human and material resources. It receives federal allocation in billions of naira every month, so the people of Kogi have no reason to live in poverty. There is no excuse for non-payment of salaries and pensions. The problem is that the APC has been stealing and mismanaging our resources”.

“As you are aware, the people are looking up to us for solution and we must not fail them. I am happy that we have intensified discussions with professionals, investors and business people from Kogi and beyond on ways to harness and manage our resources and empower our people.

“Already we have perfected a strong template that will enable us, as soon as we are elected, to swiftly pay the arrears of salaries and pension accumulated by Bello. Kogi state is largely a civil service state and our people depend on their salaries; so payment of salaries must be a priority for any government that has the interest of the people at heart. Unfortunately, Bello has failed to deliver on this.”

Ologbondiyan also noted that the party has produced a blueprint for wealth creation including investments in industrialization, rural infrastructure, agriculture, trade and commerce, inland water businesses as well as financing instruments for small and medium scale entrepreneurs.

The PDP further stated that the era of stealing and mismanagement of resources in Kogi will come to an end with the election as the party is set for a landslide victory given the popularity of the PDP and its candidate, Engr. Musa Wada and the irreversible consensus among the people to do away with the repressive, corrupt and arrogant APC administration in the state.
