Senator Dino Melaye representing Kogi west Senatorial district has likened civil servants in the state to Internally Displaced Persons (IPDs).
The House of Representatives also on Wednesday mandated its Ad Hoc Committee on Bailout Funds to investigate non-payment of salaries of Kogi workers and report back within one week.
Melayem who is coordinating about 40 of his colleagues to donate no fewer than 1, 260 bags of rice to civil servants in the state said the move was borne out of the pitiable condition of workers in the state.
Melaye, who raised the issue on the floor of the Senate and later briefed newsmen, said many civil servants in the state could no longer feed their families, following the alleged refusal of the state government to pay months of outstanding salaries.
He said the food items, when collated, would be shared equally among civil servants in the 21 local government areas of the state.
