Sokoto State Government has denied the alleged diversion of N198bn.

 

It said reports to that effect on social media were false and malicious.

 

A statement by Special Adviser Media and Publicity to Governor Aminu Tambuwal urged Nigerians to disregard the reports.

 

The official statement strongly debunked the information as false and provoking and assured the public that the Sokoto State Government have maintained a sterling image when it comes to managing finances.
