APC tackles Okowa
Theophilus Onojeghen, Warri
The Delta State chapter of the All Progressives Congress has chided Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State for allegedly taking credit for the N800m recently released by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government for the payment of local governments’ workers’ salaries in the state.
A statement signed by the state Chairman of the party, Prophet Jones Erue, read, “We are very happy for the relief that this payment will bring to the families of many council workers who have suffered extreme neglect for too long. We are appalled by Governor Ifeanyi Okowa’s attempt to take credit for it. He should learn to reap where he sows and not be crafty.”
He added, “The truth remains that Okowa does not feel the pain of workers. If he did, he would have long approved payment to them just as President Buhari did when he gave bailout to all the states to pay workers’ salaries a few months after he was sworn in.”
