Now that the different states have been told to go and start looking for how to fund their excesses, we are beginning to hear, ‘our state civil service is over bloated’, ‘too many ghost workers’, ‘we can not pay salaries’, ‘we can’t employ now’, ‘bailout funds’, ‘my state is broke’ . . .
But when the money from oil was dropping into their laps at $120 per barrel, it was a family affair. It never occurred to anyone that the price could fall to $27 per barrel or that the oil can even run out!!! So here we are, IGR SEF can’t pay state owed debts, talk less of new projects and salaries. In the glaring light of that, yet, no toning down on lifestyles of legislators and executive.
No cut in allowances. No reduction in expectations as government pikin. Because truth be told, the salaries are bearable. But the allowances? Blood of God! It’s plain criminal. So, let those who are looking for more adapters to plug and be tapping from our commonwealth be ready. Everything will soon end. Shebi TSA has come and we now know that some agencies were richer than Government, yet their salaries were still being paid by the same government they were richer than.
Now we shall see who can just sit down and be transferring N500m into someone’s account for doing nothing. Yet there are hospitals needing funds, unpaid pensions, unpatched roads, no drinkable water, crowded classrooms, ill-equipped police force… God will George all of you. Because we don judge una already! Thieves!
