The Peoples Democratic Party in Ekiti State has said the All Progressives Congress lied about the first payment of the Paris Club loan refund  to  the Ekiti state government.

The party's publicity secretary, Jackson Adebayo said the Gov Ayo Fayose led administration got N8.8bn as first tranche of the Paris Club loan refund and not N9.5bn as claimed by the opposition party in the state.

In a recent statement issued by Adebayo, the state government and the 16 local councils shared N5.4bn and N3.4bn, respectively.

Adebayo said, “It is even an irony that states and local councils in Nigeria are being treated like beggars on the refund of money belonging to them that was illegally deducted by the Federal Government.

“It is sad that instead of the Federal Government refunding the money it illegally deducted with apology to the states and local councils, it is the one giving terms,” the PDP said.

The party said it was funny that the same APC that plunged the state into the debt during its four years rule was the one trying to get back to the minds of Ekiti people througha false information.

The party also added that no state had received second tranche of the refund.
