Paris Club Refund Deductions: Governors’ Noise, A Lack Of Defence And Unjustified – Malami
Written by City Radio on August 11, 2022
The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, on Thursday, said that state governors have no basis for complaining about Paris Club refund deductions paid to consultants they hired.
He made the comment at a ministerial media briefing at the State House in Abuja.
Malami also explained that the governors took steps to pay the consultants and later decided to stop payment while asking for an out-of-court settlement when the matter was dragged to court.
This, according to him, resulted in a request to President Muhammadu Buhari to make the payment, which was then passed on to the Office of the AGF for a legal opinion.
