Oshiomhole faults ministries of Finance and Petroleum over owed salaries

The Governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole has blamed the Ministry of Petroleum Resources and Ministry of Finance for workers salaries owed by different states.                        
He said both Ministries “refused to transfer into the Federation Account.
Governor Oshiomhole said: “the NNLG had every year made payments of about $1.5 billion to 2 billion Naira which ought to go the Federation Account but was expended by the Federal Government”.
Governor Oshiomhole also stated that the office of the Ministry of Finance was aware of the payment and also some other companies that remit their revenue.
Speaking as a guest on Channels Television’s breakfast programme, Sunrise Daily, Governor Oshiomhole explained that for the past four months under the past government, the Federal Government has not been able to pay salaries from her legitimate income.
He also raised concerns about the crude oil funds and also spoke against crude oil theft, insisting that the development had triggered the formation of a committee which he is a member of.
The Governor commended President Buhari’s decision that all revenue generating body for Federal Government should be remitted to the Federal government.
