Ndume threatens to quit Nigeria

Maina: Court hears Ndume’s bail application Thursday

 Ali Ndume representing  Borno South in the Senate on  Thursday threatened to emigrate from Nigeria if relevant authorities refuse put things in order by diffusing what he called the ‘ticking time bomb’.

Senator Ndume made the threat while reacting to submissions by the Chairman of the National salaries, Income and wages Commission (NSIWC), Mr Ekpo Nta before the Senate Committee on Establishment, over embargo placed on employment.

Failure of  Nta to tell the committee the total amount of salaries and wages the federal government pays its workforce yearly,  infuriated many members of the committee who wondered why recurrent expenditure in the yearly budget is not decreasing on account of embargo placed on employment and retirements at the various agencies.

Ali Ndume told Nta that he was supposed to know the total wage bill of the federal government workers in arresting the dangerous trend of increase in yearly recurrent expenditure component of the budget without new recruitments and even with the retirement of workers on yearly basis.
