    Health minister donates drugs, medical consumables to IDPs camps in Benue

    PT, this headline appears to be a gift from the minister own pocket. On the contrary, it is public fund made to members of the public in distress and should therefore not be described as donation — no more than the federal government building a school in a town is a donation to a town’s people.
