PDP tells Oshiomhole to account for 8-yrs N42bn security vote

The Edo chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has urged  the immediate past  national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole to  account for N42 billion security vote collected in  his tenure as Edo state governor
Addressing journalists yesterday in Benin, the state publicity secrtary of the party, Chris Nehikhare, urged Edo people not to consider Oshiomhole as a serious minded person as he can’t be trusted.
“For eight years, he took over N42 billion as security vote and nothing to show for it. Edo people are wiser now,”
“Oshiomhole right now should not be campaigning but explaining what he did with Edo state money,”.  
Speaking further, Nehikare said  Oshiomhole while apologising to Edo people, knelt down and begged for forgiveness that he made a mistake four years ago.
“We  find it ridiculous that a man who stood on a podium four years ago to condemn APC candidate, the same man is telling people that he made a mistake four years ago,”
He said judging by his aticident,  he can no longer be trusted.
While noting that the Obaseki-led administration is working diligently to clean up the mess of his predecessor, he called on Edo people to stand up, come out enmasse to vote for the PDP.
Responding, Oshiomhole’s media aid, Victor Oshioke, said his princpal didn’t received N42bn as security vote during his tenure.
“Let Obaseki disclosed the amount he has taken in four years and compare with that of Oshiomhole’s first tenure,”.
On Oshiomhole’s appology, Oshioke said it takes courage for a man to accept his mistake and apologized.
 “He is a man who takes responsibility for his actions, apologises and asked to be forgiven.
“His apology should be accepted  because there is nothing on ground to justify Obaseki being trusted for re-election.
He said they campaigned for Obaseki in the spirit of continuity but on assumption of office, we saw that he came to destroy not to continue where Oshiomhole stopped. 
“So, we want somebody else who will continue from Oshiomhole stopped because Obaseki has nothing to show for the four years he has been here,” he said.
