The State government however, exlained that the state’s inability to draw overdraft to pay salary, a practice that has been on for some months was the reason for non payment of full salaries.  


According to them, Kogi State was indebted to banks to the tune of N4. 8 billion, a situation that led to the bank mopping up the March 2020 statutory allocation paid in April.
They also cited COVID-19 challenge as reasons the State cannot pay full salary.
