EDO STATE: PDP ACCUSES ADAMS OSHIOMHOLE IS PLANNING TO SPEND N5B BEFORE LEAVING OFFICE


Edo State chapter of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has accused the outgoing governor of the state, Adams Oshiomhole, of plotting to spend about N5 billion few days to his exit from office on Saturday, claiming that the governor has sent the sum as supplementary budget to the state House of Assembly for approval.

However, Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Prince Kassim Afegbua, while reacting to the PDP, simply said: “Why should Dan Orbih be drinking panadol for another man’s headache?”

PDP, at a briefing in Benin by its chairman, Chief Orbih, also said the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, had given the party unhindered access to inspect voting materials used in the conduct of the September 28 Edo State governorship election as directed by the tribunal.

On the visit of President Muhammadu Buhari to Edo State, the PDP chairman asked Governor Oshiomhole to take Mr President on a facility tour of his Iyamho country home, claiming Mr. President would be “commissioning a ward of an existing hospital, a private university built with state money and a resurfaced road. “We have observed with displeasure the despicable financial actions of the governor.

They range from the approval of inflated contracts to proposed presentation of a supplementary budget of N5 billion that he wants to spend in less than eight days to his exit as governor,” he said.
