Ekiti State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress has threatened to sue the administration of Governor Ayodele Fayose, if it misuses the N9.6 billion Paris Club refund.
The party in a statement issued on Tuesday by its Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, accused the Governor of lying that the refund to the state was N4bn after debts and local government deductions.
According to the party, the refund to the state was neither subject to debts nor local government deductions because it is a special fund meant for the payment of salaries.
It alleged that the governor had started ”a fresh wave of brainwashing sessions among workers and traditional rulers to distort facts on the Paris Club cash in order to short-change Ekiti people again.”
We are aware that after our great party, the APC, yesterday (Monday) educated Ekiti people and workers in particular about the details and truth about the N9.5 billion Paris Club refund to Ekiti State, Governor Fayose has begun a fresh and more aggressive propaganda to have his way to selfishly misapply the money.
The party declared that it would stand on the side of the people and will disallow ”fraud, selfishness, greed and wickedness to continue to the advantage of one man while Ekiti people suffer as a responsible opposition party.”
