SHOCKING!!! Edo State On Fire As Saint Oshiomhole Gets Caught In A Massive Corruption Scandal, Lands In ICPC’s Net

Sponsored link


It was shocking, as the  opposition Peoples Democratic  Party, PDP, dragged the former Edo State Governor, Adam Oshiomhole, to the  Independent Corrupt Practices and other Offences Commission, ICPC,  for allegedly using the State’s resources to give out vehicles worth N128 million, to a former Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Hon Elizabeth Ativie.
In the petition sent to the ICPC, the PDP accused Oshiomhole of violating sections 10, 19, and 23, of the ICPC Act.
State Chairman of the PDP, Dan Orbih, who spoke at a press briefing on Sunday, said the party has hired the law firm of Ehiogie West-Idahosa, to help recover the vehicles he said belonged to the Edo State Government, from Hon Ativie.
Before now, Hon Ativie had refused to return the official vehicles to the Assembly, over claims that the vehicles, two Hilux vans, one Lexus jeep, and one Toyota Prado jeep, were given to her by Oshiomhole, because she agreed to step down as Speaker. 



 She said she has registered the vehicles in her name, and even sold one of them.
However, Orbih noted that the party hired the law firm over an alleged plot by Governor Godwin Obaseki and the leadership of the Edo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, to sweep the matter under the carpet, by treating it as a party affair.
He disclosed that the party would soon file a petition on how Oshiomhole gave out 346 brand new vehicles bought with government money to different people of varied interest, shortly before he left office.
He said: “Issues bothering on criminal acquisition of State properties must be treated with utmost seriousness.
“It is in the light of the development that the PDP mandated the legal firm of West-Idahosa to swing into action, to ensure that the vehicles in question are retrieved and returned back to government.
“West-Idahosa has petitioned the ICPC on behalf of the PDP. This is one matter we will not allow them to sweep under the carpet. They cannot take it as internal affairs of the APC.
“The anti-corruption crusade of the current government should be all embracing. It should not spare those who belong to members of APC.”
