Alleged diversion of Paris Club Refunds: They are fighting Buhari not me- Zamfara Gov.

Chairman of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum (NGF), Abdulaziz Yari, at the weekend said allegation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, that he diverted $3 million from the Paris Club Refund into building a 100-room hotel in Lagos for himself was false.

The Zamfara State governor accused some chieftains of the All Progressive Congress of being behind the allegation against him saying those raising the alarm about the missing Paris Club funds were those who lost in last November’s governorship election in Ondo State.

Gov. Yari said, “The Paris Club refund came on the verge of doing an election and some of the politicians that were not happy with the outcome of the election thought that the Governors’ Forum fund was used to win the election. “So they are not happy with the outcome and unfortunately it isn’t the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), it is APC.”

Speaking further, “The target isn’t Yari; the target is President Muhammadu Buhari because some people want to hold him and say ‘where did you get the money to do the election?”
