Edo 2016: I’m Compiling Evidence of Ize-Iyamu’s Fraud to EFCC — Oshiomhole

Edo Governor Adams Oshiomhole said he was compiling vouchers and other evidence of the fraud perpetrated by the past Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) government which Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu served as Secretary to the State Government and now the governorship candidste of PDP in the September 10 governorship election in the state; and pass same to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for investigation and prosecution.
Pastor Ize-Iyamu was also SSG in Oshiomhole’s government for five years until he went back to PDP in 2014 after a disagreement.
The Governor warned Pastor Ize-Iyamu and leaders of the PDP that the APC train will crush them if they don’t stay off the rail tracks.
Speaking at the Local Government rally of the APC in Fugar, Oshiomhole said: “When I’m going to Anegbette, I will go with the vouchers where the past PDP government with Ize-Iyamu as Secretary to Government allocated money which they said was for the construction of Anegbette bridge. In their books, they claimed they have built a bridge to Anegbette, and everything must go to Abuja.
“They collected the money in full and Anegbette got nothing, Even to Ayua, my mother’s village, an earth road, Ize-Iyamu as SSG, in their books, which I will circulate, they claimed they did the road from Jattu to Ayua to Iyiukhu and they collected the money and pocketed it.
“That is why we have to warn him to stay off the rail tracks because the train is coming and if he’s not careful the train will crush him. He can’t afford a fight.”
The Governor took a swipe at the PDP for crticising the construction of a state University in Edo North, saying they lacked foresight.
“PDP thinks Edo North is not part of the state. Where Ogiadomhe is seated, Dan Orbih is seated, people are saying why should we build Edo University in Iyamho. So I ask them, during PDP time, they built a University but they called it after somebody, should I build Oshiomhole University, Iyamho? No. I will rather build Edo University for the people of Edo, for the youths of Edo, for Edo people to own and Edo people own it”, the Governor said.
