President Muhammadu Buhari has warned Nigerians against re-electing governors who cannot pay salaries of civil servants even after collecting bailout funds from the federal government.

He made this known while speaking with the Hausa service of the Voice of America on Tuesday, January 8, 2019.

He said: “I wonder how these governors are able to sleep, knowing that they have refused to pay workers their wages. These workers have families to cater for, they pay rent, pay school fees, hospital bills and food for their families.”

President Buhari further advised Nigerians to use their voting rights to ensure they voted only for people who would deliver.
