“Out of the seven months inherited, we have been able to pay four months. I can tell you so far, since the inception of this Administration the State has expended N146 billion in the payment of salary.
” This tells you the percentage of total earnings that has gone into servicing this segment of the society. Therefore, we’re surprised to hear that members of labour are agitating.
” I want to put it on record that the State has not received the Paris Club fund. We have heard series of rumours. I can say categorically that this fund has not been received. When received; it will be judiciously expended.”
