Plan by Ize-Iyamu to probe me ridiculous – Oshiomhole
Governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole, has waved aside the threat by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, governorship candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, to probe his administration, if he emerged winner of the forthcoming polls.
Oshiomhole, while reacting noted that Ize-Iyamu would “go to jail” for alleged misappropriation of government funds.
He said, “Ize-Iyamu will first of all vomit the N1.2 billion he shared with Dan Orbih which is money meant for defence that he collected from Fidelity Bank. After that, he will go to jail before he can probe me. Ize-Iyamu, Orbih and their fathers have confessed that they collected N700miilion and N500million to share during the election.
“They go to Port Harcourt every day to visit EFCC. Dan Orbih was taken from Port Harcourt to Benin with a black Maria where his house was searched.
“Today, they are living in fear. But they must return the money. Look at the company, between Ize-Iyamu and Orbih, now they are singing like witches in the night how they shared that money. But they must be prosecuted like Metuh and others because that was how they stole in Edo for 10 years.”
The governor pointed out that the state was thrown into untold hardship and under-development under the administration of the PDP.
He said the people should expect records of alleged looting by the PDP and its candidate soon.
Oshiomhole continued, “That money they shared was meant for defence, for roads. For 10 years they ruined the state but in seven and half years we have worked.
“Who was the Chief of Staff to PDP government that undeveloped Edo state? Ize-Iyamu. Who was the SSG and PA (Personal Assistant) to (Lucky) Igbinedion? Ize-Iyamu.
“How can somebody who has never worked before be living in a house that is as big as stadium. Where did he get the money. We are compiling how he looted Edo state and we will publish them.
“PDP failed woefully, they have been deceiving our people. Ize-Iyamu and Co sold Okpella cement through third party.”
