Gov. Aliyu Bleeding State Treasury – Niger APC Alleges

gov Muazu Babangida AliyuThe Niger State chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC), has accused the state Governor, Dr. Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu of wasting the state’s resources by appointing new Special Advisers that would not yield any economic value to the state, adding that he should instead concentrate on policies that would improve the lives of the people.

The salvo from APC came on the heels of the admission by the governor recently, that some of his SAs have not offered him any advice since seven years running.

The state Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mr. Jonathan Vatsa, made the party’s position known on Sunday in Minna, the state capital.

He said, “It is more absurd that he knows that there were Special Advisers who were not doing their jobs for seven years and still went ahead to appoint new ones to be paid from the lean resources of the state.

“We are in grief as to how the state treasury is bleeding and they want to silence us with watery responses and statements that were not issue based, they always choose to shift ground when people desire change, the change has come to Niger state and they will see it”.

Mr. Vatsa, however, advised the PDP-led state government to sack those advisers that are incompetent and channel the resources meant for them to something else that will benefit the majority of people of the state.
