The Saudi Arabian Prince’s Donation Must Be Laid To Rest Now

By STANDARD TIMESPRESS

…And I must confess to the public that following my interview with Hon. Alhaji Alpha Kanu, the article on the interview which I posted to many media houses through their e-mails had a factual error with regards to the amount of money the Prince donated to the Government of Sierra Leone for the two programmes through the Alwaleed Bin Talal Humanitarian Foundation. In that telephone interview conducted two days after the Prince’s visit, Hon.
