The Chairman, Kaduna North Local Government , Samaila Sulaiman has lamented that no single penny came into his LG Account from Abuja as Federal Government revenue allocations.
Speaking with Journalists in Kaduna over the weekend, the Chairman and a Chieftain of the All Progressive Congress said that, for the past 15 months, the local government has lived on its internally generated revenue.
“As far as Abuja is concerned, we haven’t received any funds, so I can’t say if the money is being withheld or not because in the account, we do not have any money coming to Kaduna North, South, Kaura and other Local Government areas.
“We do not have a single penny or grants coming to the center, We really solely, 100 per cent, on loans from other local government to pay salaries,” Sulaiman stated.
