Olalekan Adetayo, Abuja
The Chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum, Abdulaziz Yari, said the forum would resolve all pending court cases on the Paris Club refund.
Yari said this while speaking with State House correspondents at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Some consultants were said to have dragged the forum to court over their commission.
The governor said, “It (litigation) is because there is money involved, when there was no money nobody took us to court.
“So, now that the money is there, some are saying that they have been either short-changed or are not being paid accordingly.
“There are some issues that are in court and we are going to resolve them.”
Yari, who is the Zamfara State Governor, said the forum would also protect the images of governors.
“It is important to protect our images, that of the forum and each and every governor,” he said.
