The lingering controversy involving state governors and Abubakar Malami, attorney-general of the federation, on the Paris Club refund dominated the cover pages of Nigerian newspapers.

The Punch reports that Nyesom Wike, governor of Rivers, has sued Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Aminu Tambuwal, governor of Sokoto, and the PDP over the conduct of the party’s presidential primary election. The newspaper says the federal government has ruled out interference in the trial of Ike Ekweremadu, former deputy president of the senate.

The Nation reports that Salihu Lukman, the national vice-chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), said north-west governors are behind Bola Tinubu, the party’s presidential candidate. The newspaper says the federal government has insisted on five percent telecommunications tax.

Daily Independent reports that Malami said governors have no grounds to complain about the Paris Club debt to consultants. Peter Obi, governor of Anambra, said his job in 2023 is to return power to the people, the newspaper says.

The Guardian says aggrieved members of the Catholic Church have criticised Simon Lalong, governor of Plateau, over his reference to the Pope while defending APC’s Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket. The newspaper reports that the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has asked Nigerians not to vote for politicians with no passion for education.

Daily Trust reports that President Muhammadu Buhari said the federal government will not use force to rescue abducted Kaduna train victims. The newspaper says the military has disclosed that 1,755 terrorists have surrendered with 29 killed in two weeks.

Daily Sun says Nasir el-Rufai, governor of Kaduna, has written to Buhari that terrorists are creating “parallel” government in Kaduna state. The newspaper reports that Catholic bishops have asked the federal government to stop the killings in the south-east.
