Mr. Musa Wada, the candidate representing the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), at the Kogi State governorship polls to take place on November 16, has vehemently criticized some of the decisions made by Governor Yahya Bello’s administration.
Mr. Wada said that the screening of workers by Governor Bello’s administration lacks human face promising Kogites that all absurdities in the exercise will be corrected in his administration.
The governorship aspirant, during his campaign rally by his campaign organization at Ankpa, Okpo and Abejukolo in Lokoja on Friday, promised those present that in order for justice to prevail in the state, he will review the screening of Local Government Workers and Pensioners in a bid to prevent them from suffering in their old age.
Wada’s statement alleges that many of the workers and pensioners were deliberately screened out at all levels during the “endless screening exercise”.
The statement, signed by Mr Austin Okahi and issued in Lokoja on Friday by the Musa Wada Campaign Organisation on behalf of Mr Wada, said that the candidate made the promise while addressing rallies at Ankpa, Okpo and Abejukolo.
He also condemned the state of the road at the visited areas and promised to rebuild them if elected as governor.
The aspirant emphatically sympathized with state and local government workers in the state over the alleged delay by the State Government to pay their salary for years now.
He described such act as pathetic and dangerous to the state economy.
Furthermore, Wada reprimanded the recent “window dressing” development adopted by Governor Bello, adding that a better development that would truly improve the lives of people in the state should be adopted instead.
