Beneficiary Hails FG Over Plans To Clear Judgement Debts

A beneficiary, Ned Munir Nwoko of Riok Nigeria Limited has praised the federal government over her plans to clear some parts of its domestic judgement debts. Nwoko said if part of the debts is cleared, the debt profile of the federal government will be drastically decreased.

It was gathered that a document dated 28/2/2020 and signed by the former Chief of Staff to the President late Abba Kyari and titled, ‘’Liquidation Of Judgement Debts On Behalf Of Federal MDGs, States And Local’’, the request was forwarded to the office of the Finance minister asking her to liaise with the Accountant General of the Federation and also the Hon Attorney General and Minister of Justice to work out a modality for the payment of some of the debts of the FG of Nigeria.

The letter reads in part, “Accordingly you are kindly requested to engage the Federal Ministry of Justice to discuss and agree on a specific and appropriate funding proposal to inform the president’s directives on the relevant issue.”

A document forwarded under cover of this memo explains that the payment is to be made pursuant to a judgement obtained in suit no FHC/ABJ/CS/148/20172017 which arose from a dispute in connection with the Paris club debt refund.

Governors Forum Sues for Accurate Dissemination of Information

The Nigeria governors’ forum (NGF) have refuted claims of hoarding palliatives meant for distribution in various states of the country.

In a statement by the head, media & public affairs of the NGF, Abdulrazaque Bello-Barkindo, the forum while pleading with the public to desist from spreading rumors said a lot of the information circulating the social media needs to be fact checked.

The statement said “the NGF reemphasizes and corrects the impression that palliatives found in warehouses that were broken into in Lagos and some other states were kept in storage for members of the society especially our vulnerable citizens.”

According to the statement, the erroneous impression in the public domain that these palliatives were hoarded is not just inaccurate, entirely erroneous and untrue but also mischievous, to say the least.

Until mid-October, when the NGF  had its last meeting, up to ten states had not participated in the flag-off ceremonies for the distribution of palliatives in their states. This was because the items meant for distribution in these states had not been completely received from CACOVID, the forum said.

The governors also explained that some other states that still had palliatives in their warehouses chose to keep a strategic reserve ahead of a projected second wave of covid-19.

The NGF assures all contributors to the palliatives that prior to the looting of these ware houses, states had kept full accounts of all the items received and distributed.

The President, in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, explained he decided not to talk on the shooting incident until he had access to all the facts.

He also promised property owners and business owners affected by the arson across the nation would get justice.

Buhari, according to the statement, said:

“As the Judicial panel of inquiry set up by the Lagos State Government, starts sitting on Monday, President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed his full support and optimism that it will assist the nation to give justice to peaceful protesters who lost their lives, security men who were murdered and property owners whose assets were vandalized and looted.

“The President, appealed to the people all over the country to maintain peace and brotherhood as the machinery of the government and the wheel of justice turn against the perpetrators of murder,  stealing, rape, assault and malicious damage to public and private property.

“President Buhari reiterated his appeal telling Nigerians not to turn on each other in hate as according to him, peace, brotherhood, and inter-communal harmony are central to the nation’s ethos.

“He said it is important that the police and other security agencies move everywhere to restore calm and normalcy as quickly as possible.”

The statement added“While the administration has  for its part, blocked so many means of looting public money in a war against corruption, it is the expectation that all civil authorities, community and religious leaders in the country must rise against the organized looting  we are witnessing in parts of the country.”

The President admonished families to reject items looted and brought home by their children.

He stated: “Families must turn back children who bring home unaccounted goods, in the same way wives must ask their husbands to return looted items brought home.

“Looting and vandalism will hurt trade and investment growth in our country, both large and small industries, as well as our hardworking people in the informal sectors of the economy.
