Edo State chapter of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has accused Governor Adams Oshiomhole, of plotting to defraud the state of N5 billion.Oshiomhole will vacate office on Saturday.
PDP state chairman, Chief Orbih, told newsmen in Benin, that Oshiomhole has sent the sum as supplementary budget to the state House of Assembly for approval.
He said: “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 a week before he leaves”.
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.
The chairman alleged that what the President commissioned on Monday was “a ward of an existing hospital, a private university built with state money and a resurfaced road.”
Orbih also confirmed that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, had given the party access to inspect voting materials used in the conduct of the September 28 Edo State governorship election as directed by the tribunal.
