The Edo state Governor, Adams Oshiomhole has accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in the upcoming Edo elections, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, of fraud.

Ize-Iyamu had served as the Secretary to the Edo state Government during the tenure of Chief Lucky Igbinedion.

Oshiomhole also accused Igbinedion and his deputy, Chief Mike Oghiadohme of stealing government funds.

The Governor said he was going to report the three former officials of the state to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

This is coming on the heels of reports that Ize-Iyamu had vowed to probe Oshiomhole.

The Edo Governor said “These PDP leaders should be ashamed, I am looking at the books now because I just wanted to work and look forward because for me, my task is not to be reversing.

“I have spent too much time fighting, I just wanted to work so I don’t want to look at the books. But when I see the snakes, the scorpions, the pythons, all these people that God cursed, they are trying to cause confusion, I called for the books. When I am going to Anigbette, I will carry the vouchers where Oghiadohme, Ize-Iyamu and his Oga, where they appropriated money, they call it for the construction of Anegbette bridge.”

Ize-Iyamu also dared Oshiomhole to probe his activities while he was in government.

The Edo Governor also said “In their books they claimed they built the bridge but no bridge on ground. Everything must go to Abuja. They collected the money in full, even to Ayoha my mother’s village they ate the money. I will publish them for our traditional rulers to see, they claimed they did the road from Jattu-Ayuwa-Iyuku and they collected the money they pocketed it.

“God will definitely punish them, that is why I am warning our brother, (Oghiadohme) he cannot afford a fight. He abandoned his people while he was in power and today he is talking nonsense. For seven and half years they planned to impeach me, but today I am standing and they are out of power. God impeached them.”

Governor Adams Oshiomhole also said the crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is God's handiwork.
