The Kogi State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has threatened to go to court if the Federal Government further pay any direct allocation to Kogi State local government Councils headed by administrators.
The Federal government has directed that 1 June, allocation will be pay direct to local government councils in the country.
The PDP in a statement issued on Tuesday by Prince Bode Ogunmola says any further release of allocation to illegal local government Administrators in the state would be challenged in court, described the kangaroo administrators as Gov. Yahaya Bello’s conduit pipe to defraud people of the state.
The PDP observed that despite the billion of naira accrued to the councils, percentage payment is still being paid, with no visible development to point to by the administrators.
The PDP in the statement says ” We advise the FGN to release the allocation to only elected local government elected officials henceforth describing the continuous release of funds to the councils as a recipe for a legal action that would cripple the administration in the third tier of government.
The PDP says It is a constitutional matter not to allow illegal administration order than elected councils to subsist as third tier of administration, lamented that in almost four years the Gov. Bello’s administration has continuously recycled the administrators, looting their funds at the expense of payment of salaries and infrastructure develapment.
