Who do they owe?

29 December 2014, 15:57 Jibunor George Chuks

Government continues to demonstrate every now and then that they are not for civil servants, they are not for the poor masses only for themselves.

A rich politician get security to guide him or her. Everyone of them have aids. Who protects the masses! Don't say, because we all know the answer. So dishearten that many public and private workers in this country are always in debt because the government have not paid their salaries for only God knows since when. Have never heard any commissioner, councillors, advisers, governors, representatives, senators, president, ministers and so on, saying we have not been paid.

Never in the history of this country have we heard any of such. They are the leaders that are meant to serve, they pay themselves and leaving the masses to stay empty handed. Even if they go on strike, whose business is that, theirs but not them. Who is running these ministries? Minister of education for state or the federation, I don't believe they owe those people but why do they owe the teachers they are super heading?

This people are just bunch of shameless people, no conscience, no love, no feelings, nothing at all. The only thing they share is wickedness. Many workers in this country are been owed for more than four (4)months. What is the business of these men and women that are meant to lead?

Still thinking, because is only their personal self. New budget for 2015 have been presented, ready to be approved, very sure that budget is for those that are passing it on. Do they ever return unfinished money from the budget back to the national fund or the budget is always meant to be exhausted even though many projects was not carried out with the budget funds? We have many query before God.

God bless!
