The Vice Chairman of the Nigeria Bar Association, NBA, Bauchi State chapter, Barrister Aniekan Mendie, has cautioned government officials against reckless spending.

Bar Mendie who made the call while speaking to newsmen in Bauchi on Wednesday was reacting to the release of over N804 billion from the nation’s coffers as bailout to states and local governments in Nigeria.

“Those administrators involved either at the state or federal levels shouldn’t be involved in reckless expenditure of allocations and thereafter go cap in hand begging for money to settle whatever money they have misappropriated.

“To me some states could not pay salaries and keep government running because of the issue of misappropriation of funds because corruption came into play,” he said.
