Edo State: PDP Frowns @ APC’s Plot To Recover Ex-Gov’s $31m Loot *Alleges Oshiomhole Squandered Ntrn FG Fund


Nigeria, November 06, 2015, (Blank NEWS Online) – 
Edo-State
EDO State chapter of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has accused the Governor Adams Oshiomhole led state government of squandering over N1trillion allegedly received from the federation account from 2008 till date on perceived overpriced legacy projects.

The party made the accusation while reacting to the state government’s alleged moves to recover $31million, among others, from a former governor of the state and his associates, describing the moves as a mere political desperation and persecution.

The Publicity Secretary of PDP, Mr. Chris Nehikhare at a briefing on Thursday, wondered why “it took the Oshiomhole administration seven years to wake up from its slumber to begin what is clearly a case of political witch hunting.”

He said that Governor Oshiomhole was plotting how to perpetuate himself in office by installing a political stooge as successor instead of attending to myriad of challenges presently facing Edo State.

In a swift reaction, the Special Adviser to Governor Adams Oshiomhole on Media Affairs, Prince Kassim Afegbusa, said: “Tell those PDP hawks to go and borrow their own money too, if it is that easy to extract loan commitment from the World Bank..”

On the alleged receipt of over N1 trillion since its assumption of office in 2008, he said,
“At least, Edo people can see for themselves what we have been able to do with allocations from the Federation Account. Even though it is nothing near half a trillion, let alone a trillion naira. We have been able to impact heavily on the state of our roads. We constructed new ones and rehabilitated a lot of existing ones. We will not be distracted from doing the needful for the good people of Edo State.”
