Paris Club loan: EFCC probes C’River pensioners’ allegations

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission is investigating how the two tranches of Paris Club refund paid to the Cross River State Government was utilised.

The investigation, it was gathered, followed complaints signed by 100 persons alleging that most of the pensioners in the state had yet to be paid their pensions and gratuities.

Officials of the anti-graft commission on Monday and Tuesday interrogated pensioners at the office of the state Accountant-General, where fresh screening of pensioners was to take place.

Our correspondent gathered that the operatives of the anti-graft commission were discreetly drafted to Cross River State to verify some of the facts contained in the issues raised by the pensioners.
