An aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the forthcoming governorship election in Kogi State, Senator Nurudeen Abatemi-Usman, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari deserves
commendation from all Nigerians for his timely intervention on the crisis rocking some states of the federation due to non-payment of workers’ salaries.
Abatemi-Usman, the immediate past Senator of Kogi Central Senatorial District made the remarks in Abuja yesterday.
According to him, Buhari’s decision to wade into the issue to ease the sufferings of the workers portrayed him as a true leader who has the interest of the people at heart.
“It is indeed unfortunate that we found ourselves in a situation where many states in the country could not pay salaries regularly, thereby causing the workers to go through excruciating pain to survive and maintain their families for months.
“The bailout extended to the states through means devised by the government of President Muhammadu Buhari is, therefore, an intervention that is very necessary in the circumstances we found ourselves. Rather than the eyebrow being raised in some quarters, we must all commend the President for this wonderful step taken to reduce the plight of the workers.
