Governors have told the Federal Government to stop making the Paris Club loan refunds look like a favour to the States.

Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong, stated this while addressing State House correspondents after the National Economic Council (NEC) meeting on Thursday.

Lalong insisted that the refunds belonged to the States.

“We understand the president has approved the payment of the Paris Club. The first tranche came, we’re waiting for the second tranche before the president went out for medical treatment.

“What we’re complaining is the delay that we’ve not received the second tranche after the application.

“Let it not be seen as if the Paris club is a favour done to states. These are monies belonging to states,” he said.
