$418 million Paris Club refund: Governors deny Malami’s claim on payment to consultants

Written by on August 18, 2022

The Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) has disagreed with Abubakar Malami, the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice on the payment of consultants for the Paris Club refund, calling such payments illegal.

The NGF revealed this in a statement by its chairman, Gov. Kayode Fayemi, to State House correspondents on Wednesday after its meeting at State House Banquet Hall, Abuja, according to NAN.

This comes after Malami told newsmen that the governors’ forum agreed on the engagement of consultants to provide certain services for them relating to the recovery of the Paris Club.

The NGF stated that it extensively reviewed the purported attempt by the Attorney-General and the Minister of Finance to circumvent the law and a recent judgment of the Supreme Court to secure the approval of the Federal Executive Council (FEC).
