Former Governor of Kaduna State , Colonel Abubakar  D. Umar (Rtd) has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to suspend his order to the Central Bank of Nigeria,CBN  and the Federal Ministry of Finance to pay the second tranche  of Paris Club as well as London Club refunds to states.

In a statement on Monday, Umar  described as shocking,  the revelations that governors contracted consultants  at  exorbitant fees to secure the refunds from the federal government.

Col Umar’s said in the statement, “It is now revealed that some state governors contracted consultants with fees ranging from 10 to 30 per cent to secure   refund from  the Federal  Government of Nigeria  FGN.

“With this shocking revelation, president Muhammadu Buhari  should suspend his order to the  the Federal Ministry Of Finance and the Central Bank Of Nigeria, CBN for the release of the second tranche of  the refund.

“It is also evident now that most of  the earlier released funds were deployed for other purposes   than payment of salaries and pension arrears as directed by Mr President. This impunity has got to stop.”

It could be recalled that President Buhari last week  ordered CBN and the Federal Ministry of Finance to ensure the payment of the second tranche of the funds to  states so that they can pay arrears of  salaries  to workers.
