According to SERAP, state governments have made life impossible to live due to owing so much as a result people in the respective states can't provide for their families.

Governors who continue hide under the excuse of 'limited allocations from Abuja' will be dealt with.

Labour unions have asked governors who fail to pay salaries to resign.
