Kogi State Governor, Mr. Yahaya Bello and the People Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday disagreed that the state government had failed to pay its public servants salaries for 38 months.
In a statement by its Publicity Secretary, Mr. Bode Ogunmola, the PDP urged the state’s public servants not to be deceived by Bello’s crocodile tears and apology after he admitted owing 38 months salaries only to turn around attributing it to youthful exuberance.
The PDP, also, urged the public servants not to accept the plea of Chief Edward Onoja, noting that all he ended up doing at the NLC meeting was “to market a bad product to a people wounded and injured by Bello’s administration.
”Kogi public servants are wiser now and once beaten twice shy. The time of reckoning has come. Thuggery will not pay you this time around. You are a bad product that is dead on arrival.”
He, therefore, described Onoja, as not a sincere marketer, marketing a bad product that would not sell, thereby asking Onoja to tell his boss to prepare his hand over note.
