Have courage… name governors ‘pocketing LG allocations’ -Shehu Sani tells Buhari



Shehu Sani, a former senator representing Kaduna central, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to list governors alleged to be pocketing funds allocated to local governments.


Recall that Buhari, on Thursday, accused governors of stealing LG allocations.


“If the monies from the federal government to state governments is N100 million — let’s put it at N100 million — N50 million will be sent to the chairman with a letter that he will sign that he received N100 million,” the president said.


“The governor will pocket the balance and share it with whoever he wanted to and then the chairman of the local government will say how much he must pay as salaries.


 “To hell goes development. Monies for the salaries will be given and the balance he will put in his pocket.”


Reacting to the development in a Twitter post on Friday, Sani said the president should “have courage” and name the governors found culpable.


“The president should have the courage to specifically mention those Governors “pocketing LG allocations” rather than timid generalisation,” Sani tweeted.
