Minister Badjie & Awa Jobarteh

The disgraced wife of the minister of sports has refunded the money illegally paid to her as per diem for accompanying her husband to the recently-concluded Islamic Games in Turkey.

The embattled Mrs. Awa Jobarteh was also paid per diem for the just-concluded Commonwealth Games she did not attend.

But dependable sources have informed JollofNews that Mrs. Jobarteh has on Tuesday paid D196,000 into the GNOC account as refund for the 200 pound sterlings she was paid each day for 14 days.
