Governor of Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed, has cautioned that Nigeria would be thrown into chaos if the statutory federal allocations to states are not paid.
Mohammed, who spoke at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) national secretariat, Abuja, also blamed cluelessness and lack of capacity on the part of federal government in managing the economy for the current state of affairs, according to a report by Leadership.
He spoke against the backdrop of NNPC’s disclosure that its projected monthly remittance to the Federation Accounts Allocation Committee (FAAC) for the month of May will be zero.
The governor while speaking with newsmen said, “You have just heard that the NNPC said that they will not be able to give money, I don’t know the amount of chaos that would cause, because most of the states are depending on federation account.
“Because of cluelessness and lack of capacity to manage the economy, we have found ourselves on this, there is even a blame game between the members of the party within the APC,” he said.
He said further that “the insecurity is too much, the mismanagement of the economy is too much and if poverty is added to it, I don’t know what will become of Nigeria.”
The Bauchi governor, who lamented that the security architecture of the country has failed, urged President Muhammadu Buhari to work with the governors.
