Saraki has no role in Kwara's disbursement of Paris Club refund - Kwara APC

Date: 2017-07-20

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara state has said that the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki,did not play any role in how Kwara state government utilized the money from the Paris Club refund.

The party also said that Saraki did not in any way interfere with activities of the state government.

In a statement by the state Publicity Secretary of (APC), Alhaji Sullyman Buhari, made available to journalists in Ilorin on Thursday, the party advised the people of the state to ignore rumour, insinuation and speculation about whether  Saraki had anything to do with when the State received the Paris Club refund and how it chooses to spend it.

The statement reads in part: “The Senate President is not involved in the running of the government of Kwara State and does not interfere in any way with how the state government spends its money. It is the believe of Dr. Saraki that the government is responsible and accountable to the people of the State who elected it into office and the state is greater than all individuals.

“On occasions when the people, interest groups, labour and professional unions seeks intervention about some issues  or he is intimated about certain developments, he, as the political leader in the state, can only make adequate and necessary consultations to get the facts and later offer his advise to the government.

“However, on the complaints reaching the Senate President concerning the proposed plan of the State Government on the Paris Club refund, he has initiated plans to find out the facts about the issues raised and then offer his advice accordingly to the state government.

“It should be noted that the intervention of the Senate President at any time is to the effect that the promises of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to protect the interests of all the people in Kwara State and ensure there is development across the state are kept at all times”.
