Tech­nol­o­gists cau­tion states over Paris Club re­fund

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Mustapha Suleiman

The Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Aca­demic Tech­nol­o­gists (NAAT) has cau­tioned state gov­ern­ments to en­sure that the Paris Club re­fund is used for pay­ment of work­ers’ emol­u­ments.

The as­so­ci­a­tion said this was in line with guide­lines for the re­lease of the funds, as work­ers won’t ac­cept any­thing less.

The union stated this in a com­mu­niqué is­sued at the end of its 33rd na­tional ex­ec­u­tive coun­cil (NEC) meet­ing held at the Uni­ver­sity of Port Har­court.

The com­mu­niqué signed by the as­so­ci­a­tion Pres­i­dent, Sani Suleiman and Gen­eral Sec­re­tary, Iy­oyo Hamil­ton com­mended the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment for the re­lease of N243 bil­lion to the states. It also warned against mis­ap­pro­pri­a­tion of the fund re­leased in the first tranche.
