Kogi: Idris Wada’s Aides To Drag Gov Bello to Court over Unpaid Salaries

Another legal battle is set to begin for Kogi State Governor, Alh Yahaya Bello, as past political appointees in the immediate past administration of Capt Idris Wada, are set to drag him to court for his refusal to pay their monthly salaries.

According to the spokesperson of the past political office holders who spoke in anonymity, said Yahaya Bello should remain a gentleman by honoring items listed in the handing over note and pay their October and other salaries they worked for.

It would be recalled that the governor directed the removal of the voucher containing the names of past political office holders, as plans have been concluded to pay October 2015 salaries.

The past appointees said they worked for the state government and not an individual. They said, from October to January, they where not paid following the state government inability to pay salaries before its exit.

The appointees called on the governor to be honorable in honouring the understanding to pay salaries owed workers including the past appointees.

While noting that the information reaching them that their salaries would only be paid them if they agree to defect to APC is not only a breach on their right to association, called on the governor to pay their salaries as they vowed to exhaust every legal means to get their salaries.
