Nigeria’s state governors say that they’re ready to be investigated by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The EFCC has launched a probe into how the governors, under the umbrella of the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF), spent the N522 billion Paris Club loan refund.

The governors made the comment after a meeting at the Presidential Villa on Thursday, February 16.

“We discussed the issue of Paris Club and London Club. We observed that the EFCC said it is doing investigations. Yes, we support the Federal Government for fighting corruption,” NGF Chairman and Zamfara State Governor, Alhaji Abdulaziz Yari said.

“We are waiting for the EFCC to come up with what they say is the investigation and come up with the result," he added.

The EFCC is investigating the expenditure of the funds due to some payments made by the NGF to certain consultants.
