Stop Depending On Federal Allocation, Wike Urges Govs


(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike,  has  advised governors to stop depending on funds from the Federation Accounts Allocation Committee.

He made this  known while delivering a lecture to the participants of the Executive Intelligence Course 14 of the National Institute for Security Studies in Abuja .

According to him, no state in Nigeria is poor, adding that governors should judiciously make use of resources in their states.



The governor said, “No state is poor in this country. It is this over-dependence on the Federal Government that has made some poor. At the end of every month, they send their Accountant-General/Commissioner of Finance for FAAC.

“Any state that says it is poor is deceiving you by saying that. I keep on telling them, if your state is poor, why do you want to be governor? Your state is poor; you want to run for a second term.”
