Stop Depending On Federal Government’s Allocation – Wike Urges Governors

It has been reported that the Rivers State Governor, Nyesome Wike, has advised governors to stop depending on funds from the Federation Accounts Allocation Committee.

He reportedly stated this in his lecture titled “Governance, security and sustainable development in Africa: Nexus, challenges and prospects – the Rivers State experience.”

He emphasized that no state in Nigeria is poor, making it known that governors should judiciously make use of resources in their states.

According to Wike, “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.”

He stated that, “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.”
