SaharaReporters reveals that Governor Emmanuel started building the expansive mansion immediately after assuming office. The contract for the building project suggests that the Governor may have formally endorsed a powerful fraudulent cartel and corruption channel that was used by his predecessor and benefactor, Sen.
