Contrary to reports, state governors said in Abuja on Wednesday that President Muhammadu Buhari did not rebuke them on the handling of the money they received from the Paris Club loan refunds.
The governors’ rebuttal is contained in a statement issued on their behalf by the secretariat of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum.
It had been reported that the Nigeria Labour Congress on Tuesday reacted to a statement credited to President Buhari while meeting with the nation’s traditional rulers.
During the meeting with the traditional rulers, the President was said to have decried the handling of the Paris Club loan refunds by the governors. NLC had cashed in on the said President’s statement to condemn the governors.
