  1. Well, if the oba/U.B.P. think that by posting dunkley’s trip to U.K.costs it lessens the sting of Sylvan Richards, IT DOESN’T.
    This type of information definitely lessens the oba/U.B.P. vote with the election about a year or so from now. People will not forget.
    Great news, oba/U.B.P.

  2. Unprofessional says:

    Sylvan Richards doesn’t seem to know the difference between being on Government business and a personal vacation. The pictures he posted on his Rio trip were an insult to the role he carries as a Government minister. He clearly abused his role and set the OBA’s integrity back through the extravagance of the trip and his postings while on official business.
