N522bn Paris Club loan refund: We are ready for you – Governors tell EFCC

N522bn Paris Club loan refund

In the early hours of Thursday, State governors, under the aegis of the Nigeria Governors Forum, rose from their meeting, saying they were ready for the probe being conducted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission  (EFCC) on how they spent the N522bn Paris Club loan refund.

The said meeting, chaired over by the forum’s chairman, who is also the Zamfara State Governor, Alhaji Abdulaziz Yari, was held at the old Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The meeting, which started on Wednesday evening, did not end until the early hours of Thursday.

In an interview with State House correspondents, Yari said the state governors were ready for the probe.

He challenged the anti-graft commission to conduct the probe and come up with its report.

He, however, said the state governors were in total support of the present administration’s fight against corruption.

Yari stated, “We discussed the issue of Paris Club and London Club. We observed that the EFCC said it is doing investigations.

“Yes, we support the Federal Government for fighting corruption.

“We are waiting for the EFCC to come up with what they say is the investigation and come up with the result.” More
