The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the Katsina State Government of misusing over N400 billion generated by the state in the last 31 months.
Alhaji Salisu Majigiri, the State Chairman of PDP said that the over N400 billion was “misused by top government officials”.
He said, “In spite of collecting four Tranches of debt refunds amounting to over N30 billion, the government has borrowed various sums of monies from commercial banks with double digit interest rates to the tune of N70 billion.
“The receipts, loans, internal revenue and more than N14.5 billion left in the various accounts by the last PDP administration made Katsina State one of the richest states in the country.”
“Due to the mismanagement of our resources our people have been passing through excruciating pains and reduced to beggars in the midst of plenty.
“All sectors of the economy have been rendered barren. Our people no longer get the affordable fertilizer that enable them to farm their land and get bumper harvests.
“Fertilizer and the other agricultural assistance taken for granted during the past administration have now been heavily politicised.
“Our schools are now shadows of themselves, with no instructional materials with the absence of motivational incentives for teachers who face constant threat of sack.
“Our hospitals are now conduit pipes through which funds are now siphoned in the name of endless projects for over two years,” Majigiri alleged.
