The Ministry of Justice has disregarded reports of payment of N5.3 billion judgement debts without due process.
It noted that the disbursement of the fund followed laid down procedure.
Remember that the Senate Committee on Public Account had last week accused the Solicitor-General of Nigeria, Dayo Akpata, for allegedly disbursing N4.16 billion judgement debts vote without due process and also demanded for the outstanding N1.1 billion of the judgement debts.
But, the Ministry in the written response to the Committee, lamented that a total sum of N1.1 billion was spent on the payment of Judgement debts in 2018.
The Ministry explained that the balance of N1.17 billion was carried forward to 2018 from the 2017 budget to pay off the outstanding debts of N1.1 bn.
