In a post on his social media platform, Omokri addressed critics unhappy with the federal government’s decision to limit the loan to students at federal institutions.

He challenged the governors on their use of these funds, noting that they have not increased civil servants’ salaries despite the unchanged wage bill.

In a call for transparency, Omokri questioned, “Where is the extra money going?”

He wrote:

“Instead of attacking President Tinubu for not including state universities in the student loan program, why not face your Governor? Are you aware that since May 2023, ALL Governors have been receiving at least 50% more federal allocation due to the removal of fuel subsidy?

Where is the extra money going to? It is because you are fixated on Tinubu that they are getting away with murder!
