NGF Exposes Yari of Steal $3m Paris Club Refund


The Nigeria Governor’s Forum has debunked reports that Governor of Zamfara State, Abdulaziz Yari, is building a $3m hotel in Lagos with money stolen from the Paris-London Club refunds.

Head, Media and Public Affairs of the NGF, Mr. Abulrazque Barkindo, in a statement on Monday denied the reports.

Barkindo said Yari does not have a plot of land in Lagos.

Barkindo quoted Yari as having said that the claims that he diverted to personal use the sum of $3m, N500m  and another N2.2bn from the N19bn paid his state were false and libelous.

He said, “Governor Abdulaziz Yari has said emphatically that he does not even own a plot of land in Lagos not to talk of a hotel. But the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission officials in Lagos claimed as follows: that “they have found a hotel being constructed by Governor Yari of Zamfara State with $3m he stole from London-Paris Club loan refund to Nigerian states.”
