Kogi State frontline Governorship candidate Engr Musa Wada who is running under the platform of PDP has promised to clear the backlog of salaries owed to Kogi workers and pensioners when elected.
Speaking with our reporter, Engr Musa Wada said, "I feel sad as Local Government Workers staged protest every now and then, in Kogi state. I sympathize with Kogi workers and pensioners over the terrible condition occasioned by bad governance in the state. on this note I have received divine direction to seek people’s mandate in November governorship election"
According to him, the tears and prayers of Kogi Workers and pensioners has reached the heavens, enormous pressure was mounted on me to heed the people’s call to deliver the state from decay, which forced me to take the matter to God for directions.
After pressure from people to contest the Governorship, I decided to seek divine directions and God told me to hearken to the voice of the people.
"On this note, I assure all Kogites that I will pay all outstanding salaries and pension being owed by the current and previous government when elected by November" he said.
The Salary-owing governor; the incumbent Governor Bello was mostly in the news for owing workers and pensioners for over two years. It was either one union in the state was protesting non-payment of salaries or another association was downing tools to protest lack of incentives and terrible working conditions.
Just few months ago workers in some of the LGAs in the state, protested the non payment of salaries despite directives from Nigeria Financial Intelligence Unit(NFIU) who ordered for 100% payment of salaries.
As a former civil servant himself, who understood the exact situation his colleagues in Kogi state are passing through, he has now promised to put an end to all the suffering and plight of Kogi workers if he gets just a term as governor.
“I’m more committed to offer service to the people. The endorsement, supports and prayers from Kogites has encouraged me, because the voice of the people is the voice of God,” he said.
