Gov. Yahaya Bello of Kogi says that his administration has received a fresh N30.8 billion bailout fund from the Federal Government.

He said that the money was the balance of the N50 billion bailout fund which his administration had earlier requested for.

Bello said that the money would be used to clear the four months of salary arrears being owed workers and pensioners in the state.

“I want to thank President Muhammadu Buhari for approving our latest request for bailout.

“I also thank the Attah of Igala for leading our traditional leaders to the president to strongly make our case.

” I thank the CBN Governor and everyone else in the value chain who helped to facilitate the money,” Bello said.

The governor, who highlighted his administration’s efforts to improve the security, health and education sectors in the state, promised to deliver more dividends of democracy to the people.

According to him, the decision to build a chapel was to ensure fairness to all the adherents of Islam and Christianity.

“Today, we are gathered here to flag off the construction of a building which will not just be a house of worship for Christians but also a symbol of access, welcome and inclusion,” he stated.
