Politics Bailout is a loan, not gift - Wada tells Buhari to release fund



waaada.jpe Idris Wada, the Governor of Kogi state has cautioned President Muhammed Buhari to be careful of those playing politics with the issue of bail out fund earmarked for states.

Lamenting the non-release of the fund to Kogi, Wada said it was unfortunate that months after fulfilling the necessary documentation, his state was still being denied.

Wada said this while reacting to statements credited to the APC gubernatorial candidate, Abubakar Audu and his running mate, Abiodun Faleke, at a campaign rally.

The duo had disclosed that they had prevailed on Buhari to order the stoppage of the release of the bailout funds to Kogi State until after the November 21 governorship election.

Speaking through his Chief Communications Manager, Mr Phrank Shaibu, Wada said the state government would exercise its rights even in the face of persecution by the APC governorship candidate.
