Gov. Ahmed reacts to Paris-London Fund



gov-ahmed-abdulfatah-1_01The Kwara State Government has reaffirmed that its share of the Paris-London Club refund from the Federal Government, was judiciously and prudently utilized.This was made known in Ilorin by Dr. Muideen Akorede, who is the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Communication to the Kwara State Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed.There are reports that the first tranche of the refund from the Presidency to the States was mismanaged by certain Governors. Akorede said this wasn’t the case with Kwara.He also said Kwara State share of the refund was used for infrastructure projects, to support small and medium scale businesses as well as pay salaries and pensions at state and local government levels.”The public is therefore advised to disregard spurious and completely unsubstantiated claims made by a guest on a national television program on Thursday or similar assertions on any other platform to the effect that part of the state’s share of the refund was paid to a former governor of the state and current Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki or to any other party”, Akorede reaffirmed in a statement.He added that “It is not the state government’s practice to make payments to individuals or organizations without appropriation”.
