The Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF) have denied that some billions of naria was stolen from the Paris- London Club refunds to states or from any other source.
Head, Media and Public Affairs at NGF Secretariat, Abdulrazaque Barkindo said in a statement in Abuja.
Barkindo also denied allegations that Governor Abdulalziz Yari and Chairman of the Forum built a three a million dollar hotel from monies stolen from refunds to the States.
He said the allegations were false.
THE NATION newspaper had reported that an unnamed governor was erecting a three million dollar hotel in Lagos, while online news medium, SAHARA REPORTERS, claimed that the unnamed governor was Yari of Zamfara State.
Barkindo said the reports contain harmful, damaging and libelous insinuations which remain largely unsubstantiated.
He said Governor Yari Abubakar has said emphatically that he does not own a plot of land in Lagos not to talk of a hotel
