On the issue of the N78.9billion refund which was recently approved by the federal government, The governor stated that if the State finally receives the approved refund from the Federal Government, part of the said money would be used to set up a Cancer Centre in the state.

Ambassador Desmond Akawor who happens to be the leader of the delegation and the chairman of IPAC, said the group is well satisfied with the quality of leadership exhibited by governor Wike and the developmental projects carried out within the state capital which they had already inspected at the weekend.

The leader; Ambassador Akawor stressed that the Flyover Projects, Mother and Child Hospital, Judges Quarters and the Real Madrid Football Academy are projects that would definitely stand the test of time in the state.
