The Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has revealed how a former Governor of the state, Lucky Igbinedion diverted N4 billion bank loan to a private account in Lagos.
The outgoing governor made the revelation while responding to a statement credited to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, governorship candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, where he said that the report by the Debt Management Office showing that the state is one of those heavily indebted revealed that he ( Oshiomhole) lied of not collecting a foreign loan.
But the governor in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Peter Okhiria maintained that his admunistration runs an open door policy, stressing that the records are there for all to see, alleging that the state has a record of how the the PDP leadership under former Governor, Igbenidion diverted N4 billion borrowed on behalf of the state to an account in Lagos.
