    He said, “Delta State Government has been discussing with the Federal Government on the issue of returning the fund and we know that the Federal Government will do the needful by returning the state’s money.

    “We have gone far and we are looking forward to receiving the fund. We have continued to engage the FG, who has been a good father.”
