Fayose: Governor accused of allegedly diverting N8.877b Paris Club refund

Governor Ayo Fayose has been accused of diverting the N8.877b Paris Club refund given to Ekiti state by the Federal Government.

President Buhari had earlier advised the Governors to use the funds to settle the outstanding salaries of civil servants.

A source in the presidency revealed that Governor Fayose only paid one month out of the seven months owed workers.
The source said “The agreement between the Federal Government and the state governors was very clear.

“While 50 per cent of the amount released was to be used to offset outstanding salary and pension arrears, the remaining 50 per cent would be used for the payment of other obligations.

“Some governors have however reneged on this agreement.

“Security reports available to the Presidency showed that Governor Ayodele Fayose paid only one month out of eight-month salary arrears.

“The same governor went ahead to pay a curious 13-month salary to Ekiti workers. Yet, he got N8.877 billion refund.

Several passengers, including children, were stranded at Kaduna International Airport since on Tuesday, following the failure of Arik Airlines to airlift them as scheduled.

Some of the disappointed passengers made the complaint to the Minister of State for Aviation, Sen. Hadi Sirika, at the airport during the on-the-spot assessment of the facilities on ground at the airport.

They added that it was until after the passengers approached the minister to complain that one of the official told them to come back on Saturday.

The airline was said to have been cancelling its flight without considering the distance they travelled from or the implication of such on their businesses.
