FG Can’t Tell States What To Do With Paris Club Fund – Onuesoke

Chief Sunny Onuesoke has berated the Federal Government for telling states to pay workers salary with the Paris Club refund.

Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari had last week ordered the payment of the balance of the Paris Club fund.

He also told the governor to ensure they pay workers salary with the money.

However, Onuesoke who was reacting to the development, said Buhari cannot tell the states what to do with the money.

He said that it is not all states that are owing salaries. According to him, paying salaries alone means abandoning critical things like infrastructure development.

“Nigerians should not forget that the Paris Club refund is the constitutional right of the governors. The Federal Government does not have any control over them on how to dispense the fund,” the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain said.

“I would have equally expected the President to instruct the governors to channel the fund to other area of development in their states instead of payment of salaries alone.

“The president should advice governors and including the presidency as a matter of urgency to concentrate with Paris fund in areas of parastatal investments, but not mostly workers salaries. Is Nigeria a civil service investment concern or it should industrial investment concern?”

Instead, he asked, “If all the money is use to pay arrears of workers’ salaries alone, what will then happen to the parastatals, indebted contractors, infrastructural development, education sector, health and other area of governance?”
