A former governor of Kaduna State, Ahmed Makarfi has cautioned Nigerian workers against asking for money saying they should hold the government accountable by demanding for good governance.
Makarfi stated this yesterday at the 36th Plenary and Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Unity Schools Old Students Association (USOSA) which took place at the Federal Government College.
The former governor said; “I had challenged, even before I became a governor, the Labour leaders. I knew that you people begin to talk of money, money, and money you will end up with money and that would not be useful.
“Rather, you should hold government accountable. Demand good governance, better infrastructure, security and other things expected from government and a living wage, which will be minimal.
“But if you are always asking for money, somebody gives you N10 and takes away N30 for example, how do you benefit from that?
“We should operate in a manner that government should provide free education, water, security, roads, everything, instead of government to provide for those. That is a major mistake. We must stop monetisation of everything in this country, then we will begin a path to greatness.
