Osun Did Not Receive N82bn From FG – Govt
Osun State government has debunked the insinuation that the sum of N82billion has been credited into its account by the federal government describing it as a blatant lie.
The government, through the Bureau of Communication and Strategy Office of the Governor, said there was nothing like an N82billion paid to Osun State out of an imaginary “$4billion being over-deductions on Paris and London Club Loans on the accounts of State and Local Governments from February 1990 to March 2002”.
The statement by the Bureau, signed by its Director, Semiu Okanlawon said, “It sounds warped that such information would emanate from an interloper to Nigerians. Should Nigeria receive such funds and such huge amounts are to be credited to respective states, simple logic dictates that the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Information or the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation would be duly involved and communicate such a development to Nigerians through the appropriate quarters.
“It is curious that since the misinformation was released and credited to a senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Senator Dino Melaye, who was reported to have manufactured the misinformation, has not come out to deny making the statement.
