The Chairman of Nigeria Labour Congress, Kogi State chapter, Comrade Onuh Edoka, has hurled insults at the state governor, Yahaya Bello.

Edoka’s vitriol is coming on the heels of statement made by Bello that the state government does not owe workers in its employ.
Miffed by the governor’s assertion, Edoka took the occasion of the workers union’s visit to the Government House on Wednesday during which they were received in audience by Bello himself to take up the issue with their host.
“Let me put the records straight. The former governor, Captain Idris Ichalla Wada spent 48 months in office and he paid 45 months salaries leaving the allocation of December 2015 and January 2016 for the your administration to access.
“Nothing is farther from the truth than this. The truth is that your administration is hugely indebted to Kogi workers and you should find a means to defray it rather than lying to the public,” Edoka told Bello.
