CSOs knock govs over Paris Club refund 

Read Time:35 Second

A coalition of human rights organisations on Thursday decried the 36 state governors’ refusal to pay consultants involved in the $13bn Paris Club refunds as insincere.

According to them, the Nigerian Governors’ Forum’s refusal to pay consultants who assisted in the fund’s recovery was an injustice that Nigerians should reject.

The CSOs said there were “deliberate efforts being made by certain interested parties to obfuscate the facts to direct the narratives to suit their nefarious purposes and interests.”

The PUNCH reported that the $418m Paris Club debt refund fee has been a subject of controversy between the NGF and the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, in recent weeks.
