The governor who madd this public while addressing Abia State Executive Council who are in Aba for a retreat, said his administration will not deceive the people like the previous administration did.

The Federal Government had last Thursday announced the sum of N5bn as palliative to each state of the federation, including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), to cushion the impact of the removal of fuel subsidy.

Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno State had announced this during an interactive session with State House correspondents in Abuja after the statutory meeting of the National Economic Council (NEC) chaired by Vice-President Kashim Shettima.
