Simon Achuba To Sue Yahaya Bello Over N819m Unpaid Salary, Allowances by 9jadopestgist: 12:55pm On Jul 24, 2019
According to kogireports, Kogi state Deputy Governor, Elder Simon Achuba has demanded for the immediate payment of his outstanding salaries and allowances that has been withheld since 2017.

In a letter sent to Kogi state governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello by Achuba’s lawyers, Falana and Falana Chambers, the accumulated statutory allocations the state government has withheld is N819,709,980.

Achuba’s lawyers gave Kogi state government seven days ultimatum to pay the Deputy Governor or face legal action.

The letters goes thus:
“As you are no doubt aware, our Client’s office is a creation of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (As Amended).

“Accordingly, the office is statutorily enttled to the prompt release of all allocations due to it as appropriated by the Kogi State House of Assembly and signed into law as the budget of the State by your Excellency.

“Our client has informed us that your Excellency’s Administration has consistently refused to give approval for the release of funds for the smooth running of the office of the Deputy Governor even after memos to that effect have been approved by your office. In particular, the statutory allocations approved for the office of the Deputy Governor have been withheld by the State Government since 2017.

“The accumulated statutory allocations the state government has withheld is N819,709,980.oo (Eight Hundred And Nineteen Millon, Seven Hundred And Nine Thousand, Nine Hundred And Eighty Thousand Naira) which includes travel allowances, hotel bills, pledges and outstanding monthly impress and salaries due to our client as the Deputy Governor of Kogi State. These said statutory allocations are duly captured in the Kogi State Appropriation Laws of 2017, 2018 and 2019 supported by various memos sent your office since 2017 which were duly approved without cash backing till date.

“Notwithstanding the fact that the statutory allocations have been illegally withheld our client has continued to carry out his functions as the Deputy Governor of Kogi State. In as much as our client is prepared to continue to discharge the enormous responsibilities of his office he is currently hampered by lack of funds which has wide ranging implications for the State even as it prepares for the forthcoming gubernatorial election.

“In view of the foregoing, we have our client’s instructions to request Your Excellency to use your good offices to ensure the immediate payment of the withheld statutory allocations legitimately appropriated for the office of the Deputy Governor of Kogi State since 2017.

Buhari is the worst calamity.
At least, Bello is only a calamity to a single state but Buhari is a calamity to Nigeria.

Hmmmm Kogiiii

Oxford should please help us include Kogi in the next edition of their dictionary.

Kogi (Adj.): Emotional trauma as a result of unpaid salary or wage.

Usage - I've not been paid for five months now, I'm really Kogi.

*the company has been in Kogi for 3 months, I doubt if workers can endure it anymore.

I only pity the poor workers that are being owed salaries in excess of two years. I don't have feelings for thieves that fell apart. Besides, he has not been working for the state. The problem between them started when the deputy governor decided to work for Atiku in the last elections against Buhari. You know Yeye bellow worships Buhari. They didn't remove him just for political correctness, in the second term, it might be yeye bellow and Chief of staff Edward Onoja.

Baba RUGA get sense pass Bello. Go to Daura and see what the old man is doing for his kinsmen, same can't be said of Bello. Bello is the worst governor in Nigeria's history and a big disgrace to the not-too-young-to-run movement
