Governors call for emergency meeting over EFCC probe | Nigerian News. Latest Nigeria News. Your online Nigerian Newspaper. f

Nigerian governors have summoned an emergency meeting over the ongoing probe of how they spent the N522bn Paris Club loan refund which was shared to the states in December 2016, by the Federal Government.

The Director General of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, Mr. Bayo Okauru, stated this in an interview with newsmen in Abuja on Monday.

Okauru said the governors decided to meet in order to clarify some of the issues being raised by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in its investigations.

“Yes, the governors are meeting soon, probably this week to take a position and address some of the issues being raised by the EFCC,” Okauru said.

He, however, said the NGF had nothing to hide in its account.

The Federal Government had, in December, 2016, approved N522.74bn to be paid to the 36 states of the federation as part of the reimbursement for the over-deductions on the Paris Club loan.

  1. I dont see anything wrong in EFCC probing how this paris club loan is spend. If our governors did not have anything to hide then why all this meeting. Mehn this people are our major problem plus National Assembly

  2. where is Tu-face, is this not enough for protest?

  3. Nothing was done with it in Abia State and it is as usual T. A. Orji's style. Local Govt workers are still being owed for 4 months. Pensioners and other workers are still being owed for upwards of 4 to 10 months. Very soon the thing will die down and these workers will still be owed and nothing will be done about it.
