Your claim on Parish Club refund misleading – Ekiti APC tells Fayose

Unread postby Wsj » Mon Jun 12, 2017 8:20 pm

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has described the claim by Governor Ayodele Fayose that the fresh Paris Club refund to the state will be insufficient to pay more than one month salary as false, misleading and an attempt to misappropriate the money for selfish reasons.

The governor, according to the party had while featuring on a media
