The organised union denied allegations that they took part in sharing the monthly allocation gotten from the federal government, they called out the governor for declaring falsely the amount generated by the state internally.
The organised labour said that Fayose’s claims about the state’s IGR was contrary to the amounts declared by the Accountant-General of the state.
