July 15, 2015 – PDP House Member, Lawmaker Hon. Igariwey Sues Buhari Over N400 Billion Bailout Package For Payment Of States Workers Salaries
A member of the National House of Representative, Hon. Igariwey has sued President Buhari and other federal workers for giving N400 Billion to states struggling to pay workers salaries.
Igariwey insisted that the decision was unconstitutional.
He filed the legal case at a High Court in Abuja today. He is challenging to establish if President Buhari has the power to approve the disbursement of the N400 billion bailout package.
Joined in the suit alongside President Buhari are the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister for Justice and the Federal Ministry of Finance. Others are the Revenue Mobilisation Allocation and Fiscal Commission, the Accountant General of the Federation and Auditor General of the Federation.
Interesting to know that someone is not happy that struggling workers are about to be paid.
