The Chairman, Kogi State All Progressives Congress, APC, Stakeholders Forum, Senator Alex Kadiri has called on Governor Yahaya Bello to pay workers and pensioners in the state before any reconciliation can happen.

This was contained in a press statement signed and issued by the Chairman of the forum, Dr. Alex Kadiri, after an interactive session with the governor by the leadership of the APC Stakeholders’ Forum.

According to him, the meeting which took place at Kogi state liaison, Asokoro, Abuja late on Sunday, was at the instance of the governor.

According to the statement, Governor Bello harped on the need for reconciliation in Kogi state chapter of the party and for there to be unity amongst members.

He urged both sides in the protracted party dispute to resolve their differences and move forward as one united political party.

Speaking on behalf of the Kogi State Stakeholders’ Forum, Senator Alex Kadiri made two demands: first that the state government should take steps to pay outstanding salaries and pension to workers and pensioners respectively so as to cushion the prolonged hardship they have been experiencing in the state.

Secondly, Dr Kadiri drew the attention of the governor to the non-implementation of the reports of the two reconciliatory committees led separately by Prince Tony Momoh and General Garba (retd), set up by Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, the former National Chairman of the party.

He also reminded the Governor that resolutions reached during the interactive session with Vice-President Yemi Osibanjo before the last general elections have remained unimplemented.

Kadiri, therefore, urged the Governor to take time to read the reports as a basis for genuine reconciliatory discussion.
