Edo Governor Adams Oshiomhole yesterday described threat by governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu that he will probe his administration as laughable, The Nation reports.

Oshiomhole said: “Ize-Iyamu will first of all vomit the N1.2billion 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 the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Godwin Obaseki visited Fugar for a rally, Oshiomhole said: “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 ten years.”

The governor added: “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.

“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.”

Speaking at the PDP campaign rally in Uromi, Esan North East local government, Ize-Iyamu said he would probe Oshiomhole immediately he is sworn-in as governor.

Pastor Ize-Iyamu said every kobo accrued to the state between 2008 and 2016 must be accounted for.

He urged APC candidate, Godwin Obaseki, to start speaking for himself.

Ize-Iyamu urged Oshiomhole to probe the eight years he spent in office between 1999 and 2007 as Chief of Staff and Secretary to the State government.

His words: “I call on Adams Oshiomhole to probe my time in government and look at everything that I did.

“Let him do it because by the grace of God, when I am governor, I will probe him.

“I will probe him; every kobo that has come to Edo State, must be accounted for. That is his fear; that is why he can no longer sleep.

“Adams Oshiomhole believes that the more he attacks, the more he can hide the truth.”
