He said a significant amount of the statutory federal allocations is being spent on the wages of public servants monthly.

“Therefore, the state government has no choice but to shed some weight and reduce the size of the public service.

It is a painful but necessary step to take, for the sake of the majority of the people of this state.

“The public service of the state with less than 100,000 employees and their families cannot be consuming more than 90 per cent of government resources, with little left to positively impact the lives of the more than nine million that are not political appointees or civil servants.

“It is gross injustice for such a micro minority to consume the majority of the resources of the State,” he said.
