The Kwara State First Lady, Deaconess Omolewa Ahmed has denied allegations that she fails to fulfill promises made to beneficiaries of empowerment programme.

Mrs. Omolewa Ahmed while reacting to the allegation on Monday through her Media Aide, Mr Yinka said the office handling the SME Loan has given first set of beneficiaries the loan.

Mr. Yinka noted that the credit facility is revolving loan where first batch will need to pay up before second batch can access it.

She berated Deaconess Omolewa Ahmed for non been sensitive to plight of unemployed women, adding that the event was just media jamboree to get accolade from the public.
