It’s Criminal To Owe LG Workers 18 Months Salaries — Ize-iyamu by Nobody: 8:04am On Aug 04, 2016
The PDP candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, yesterday described as criminal the failure of APC governments to pay council workers for 18months while the state government is allegedly doling out N120 million to female supporters of Governor Oshiomhole.

Assuring the citizens that their weeping would soon be over, Ize-Iyamu was quoted in a press statement issued by his campaign, in reaction to a peaceful protest by local government workers over non payment of their salaries, yesterday.

“It is only a wicked, insensitive and irresponsible governor that will deny the workers their salaries, especially when Oshiomhole just donated N120 million to some selected market women at the Dr. Osaigbovo Ogbemudia Staduim, Benin-City, thanking them for supporting his administration.

‘’How did he spend the $225 million loan he took from the World Bank, which he said would improve the investment climate and increase the internally generated revenue of the state?

‘’How can the governor justify the N18m he pays to the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) and Channels Television at every rally for live coverage – when workers are being owned salaries?

‘’Is it right and just for Oshiomhole to be giving each local government council N18m anytime he goes for campaign, spends millions of naira hiring touts and hoodlums and yet, the welfare of government workers means nothing to him?”

Governors who owe salaries and live opulent life styles deserve CAPITAL PUNISHMENT cool cool

How can you owe a worker that's on a N30,000 monthly pay and you buy Prado jeeps worth 11million for your commissioners. Tufiakwa (Case study of Benue Governor) cool cool

Edo State Should be rated the world's most gullible state if they mistakenly vote in APC again. Its apparent that Oshiomhole will be the indirect governor of Edo state if Obaseki should win, and thus, the deceptions and exploitation by Oshiomhole will continue against Edo state indigenes.

The bad economy didn't impede him from disbursing ₦120m to selected market women for their support?

What did he do with $225 million loan he took from the World Bank?

I remember when Osinbanjo was in Edo state township hall prior to 2015 presidential election, he averred that there is always sufficient funds in Nigeria to executed any program, but the only challenge Nigeria has is the mismanagement of funds, of which he promised that the APC govt will abate when voted in. So why are they complaining of insufficient funds now ?

The Edo state government should pay Local Government workers and Pensioners instead of using scarce state resources to pay for beaming APC campaign events live on TV.

#beaming a campaign event live on a private TV station is not cheap

It's not the responsibility of state govt to pay LG workers'. Coming from a man who wish to govern a state' dude needs more orientation on separation of power.

It Money we are talking about here, not Separation of Power. The State Government has refused to give the LGA direct access to their Monthly Allocation from the Federal Government. They collect the money on behalf of local governments, deduct as much as they like from it and hands “Pee Nuts” to those Local Government Chairmen.
Oshiomhole knows he has Embezzled those Funds, hence his Silence on the Issue.
Think, the Oshiomhole you know, will he Keep Mute on things like these so close to a very crucial election?.

if u've been following trend; NULGE president was in state house yesterday' I watched it on local news '. b4 him, and other exco, He' Oshiomole defended himself' L.G have been granted autonomy since 4yrs' there was no counter accusation from the other. He even promised not to use tax payers money to settle debt incurred by council. PdP should get their facts right and stop feeding the public with fake news' Am not a politician but a concerned citizen.
