President Buhari unveils plan to resolve unpaid salary crisis in Oyo state


Following the inability of Oyo state government to pay salaries of its workers, President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday unveils plans to support the state government in ensuring that civil servants receive their outstanding salaries.

Part of the plan include the constitution of a bipartisan national salary committee that includes members from both APC and PDP.

The meeting between President Muhammadu Buhari and the state governors on Tuesday rose with a resolution to end the financial crisis being faced by Oyo state and some other state governments.

Zamfara State Governor, Abdulazeez Yari, disclosed this to State House correspondents at the end of the meeting.

Yari, who is also the Chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum, said instead of bailouts, the governors requested for the refund of Federal Government projects they carried out in their states.

He said the governors also asked that the tax paid by the Nigeria Natural Liquefied Gas Company be paid into the Federation Account and be shared.

The governor added that they also asked the Federal Government to ensure that all monies are paid into the Federation Account for sharing as stipulated by the constitution.
