A Cursory View of the N4bn budget of First Lady's Mission Building
In a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Chief Emma
Eneukwu, in Abuja, on Sunday, the All Nigeria Peoples Party described
the budgetary provision as illegal, corrupt, and unpatriotic. for
budgeting N4bn for the construction of First Ladies’ Mission House in
