Despite economic crunch, every state governor can pay salaries - Peter Obi

Former governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi has disagreed with the notion that said Nigerian states are incapable of paying salaries, insisting that with prudence and prioritizing,  states could  pay salaries and engage in other developmental activities.

Obi made the declaration over the weekend while speaking at the 17th Annual Convention of the Igbo Youth Movement at the Nike Lake Hotel, Enugu. 


The former Anambra state governor, who bagged the ‘Best Governor Ever,’ award said that those in government spent a lot of money on things that were not necessary, while running out of money for projects that would enrich the people.

Using himself as an example, Obi said that when he was the governor, that he did not keep guest houses, charter planes,  travel with more people than necessary, fly Business Class or  use bullet proof vehicles, among others.
