exercise in Zabolo in Bassa LGC.

transfer by the federal government .
” They said they have distributed #20,000 the to 61,000 household which they categorized to be the poorest of the poor , but I can tell you without any contradiction that no member of my constituency has benefited from it.”
Fom also faulted the Seven days lockdown order by governor Simon Lalong with the aim of fumigating the entire state as a result of the outbreak of Coronavirus.
