A Benin based Political Analyst and Public Commentator, Elder Macaulay Ovienria on Tuesday berated the Edo State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Dan Orbih over his recent allegations that the Comrade Governor, Adams Oshiomhole has deducted about N200 billion from the Local Government account.

Elder Ovienria in a press statement in Benin described Orbih’s allegation as “not only false, but embarrassing and condemnable.”

This is not the first time Dan Orbih will be making such spurious, reckless and unfounded allegations against the Comrade Governor but has done series of such in the past, he said, remarking that he could embark on constructive and meaningful criticism against the state government and still achieves results for his Abuja paymasters.

“He cannot achieve any meaningful result by his ungentlemanly criticism because the Edo people are too wise and understanding. Edo people can see and hear; they see what the Comrade Governor has done and is still doing.

They can appreciate; they know who are their friends and those who are pretenders,” Ovienria noted.
