Gov. Idris Wada Achievements and the Hidden Truth. By Hon Samuel Obochi

Before now, I had erroneously followed the bandwagon of online commentators who thought that the current PDP government under the leadership of Capt Idris Wada in Kogi state had not performed. The reality came to fore recently when I visited Kogi state and coincidentally I met with an official of the state government who sought an audience with me. In the course of our discussion, he presented to me facts and figures as pertained to Kogi state monthly allocation from the federation account and the IGR. From figures before me, I discovered that the monthly allocation from the federation account accruing to the state hovers between #3.5 billion to #3.7 billion while the wage billl of the state is put at #3.2 billion monthly. 

The labour force of the state was put at 22,000, Teachers about 33,000 and Local Government workers were put at 26,000. With about only a paltry sum of #500 million left after payment of workers salaries for developmental purpose, the state was in a fix as to what to do. Ordinarily, a governent without love for the workers would have gone head-on and downsize the labour force in order to free up funds for developmental purposes. In the case of Capt Idris Ichalla Wada, he opted for a humane approach. The government under his leadership jerk up the state IGR from #150 million monthly to about #600 million monthly (300 %increament). This particular feat is unprecedented in the history of governance in the state as it would only take a wizard in economics and governance to achieve this.
The records on salary show that Kogi state workers have been enjoying the #18,000 minimum wage and salaries of state workers have never exceeded the 25th of every month if not in  April 2015 when the state started having issues in the payment of salaries and it was largely due to the shortfall in allocation from the federation account. In April 2015, the state recived the sum of #2.7 billion as against the sum of #3.5 billion it normally receive. That same  month, FAAC shared about 300 billion among the three tiers of govenments for the month of March 2015 a figure far below the expected revenue to be shared.
In terms of debt, Kogi state is one of the least indebted state in the country. As at July 2015, the debt owed by some of the states are as follows:
Lagos= #500 billion
Bauchi= #125 billion
Plateau= #104 billion
Niger= #56 billion
Kano= #380 billion
Benue= #90 billion
Kebbi= #84 billion etc.
Kogi state is just indebted to the tune of #7 billion. 
The Kogi state scenario under the present leadership of Capt Idris Wada is a case of prudent management of resources to improve the well being of the people, balance in human and infrastructural developement while also ensuring that the future of the state for generations yet unborn is not mortgaged.
If performance is measured on the strenght of the revenue that comes into the state and IGR as commensurate with development on ground, then any unbias mind devoid of mischief and calumny would give an 'A' (Excellent) to Capt Idris Ichalla Wada for performance and would urge him to continue and consolidate on his achievements.

Listed below are projects undertaken in Dekina LGA alone under the administration of Capt Idris Wada. Other LGAs would follow in due course.
