Threat By Ize-Iyamu To Probe Me Laughable– Oshiomhole

Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State weekend described as laughable the threat by the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, to probe his administration.

According to Oshiomhole, “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”.

Speaking when APC governorship candidate, Godwin Obaseki, visited Fugar for a rally, Oshiomhole said “Ize-Iyamu, Orbih and their fathers have confessed that they collected N700 million and N500 million 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 ten years.

“That money they shared was meant for defence, for roads. For ten 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 to Igbinedion, Ize-Iyamu. This guy was the cook who was in the kitchen, while the people were waiting at the dining, both the pot and the soup disappeared.

“How can somebody who has never worked before be living in a house that is as big as a 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.

“They were using it to re-bag and smuggle all sorts of things. I told the people if I don’t stop that I will revoke the privatisation and sell it to anybody who is ready to work there. And that is how we got Okpella cement factory back today. Around this time next year we will be having two giant cement factories in Okpella and many of our youths will find jobs there. I started from zero and by the special grace of God Godwin will not start from zero”.

“So I laugh when he says he will probe, how can he even come in when he cannot win his ward. Edo people cannot vote for thieves at all so I wonder how he is going to probe me and that is why I said it is funny”, he added.
