Nigerian Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) has called on the Federal Government to stop giving bailouts to state governments.

According to the South-West Chairman, Mr Tokunbo Korodo, states should look inwards for ways of generating revenue.

Korodo also added that most of the bailout funds given to the states are spent on maintaining their aides.

The union leader suggested that state government’s should encourage people to return to farming, adding that it is a viable avenue of revenue generation.

Korodo said “Most of the Governors have about 20 Commissioners and over 42 Special Advisers, besides another large number of associates from which they have appointed the heads of various boards and agencies in the state.

“Governors from the 27 state governments that cannot pay the monthly salaries of their workers should look inwards to find new ways of making money to settle their wage bills.”

The Kogi state Governor, Yahaya Bello, has been accused of spending N1b bailout funds to purchase vehicles for himself and other political appointees.
