The leadership of Accord Party (AP), on Sunday, asked the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for the September 10 governorship poll, Mr. Godwin Obaseki to explain his role in the alleged #5.5bn fraudulent dealings involving real estate development, a company wherein he holds a substantial share.
The party’s statement followed a petition on the floor of the lower chamber seeking investigation of the APC candidate.
Though the campaign organisation of Obaseki had absolved the candidate of the allegation, but the National Secretary of AP, Dr. Samson Isibor, in a statement on Sunday said the explanation is “shallow” and admonished the candidate to come out clean himself.
He, therefore, called on APC candidate to clear himself of the alleged criminal offence before embarking on campaigns as the allegation is too weighty to overlook.
“Edo people are wiser now and will never make the mistake of voting for a suspect because they have suffered enough in the past. Edo People can never make the mistake of voting for anyone who will misappropriate our resources” Isibor said.
