CSOs berate govs over $13bn Paris Club refunds


A coalition of human rights organisations on Thursday cried out that the 36 state governors have refused to pay consultants involved in the $13bn Paris Club refunds, describing their action as insincerity.

According to them, the insistence by the Nigerian Governors’ Forum to block the payment of consultants who facilitated the recovery of the fund was an injustice that should be rejected by Nigerians.

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


The PUNCH reported that $418 million 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.
