The leadership of Accord Party has asked the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate for the forthcoming September 10 governorship poll, Mr. Godwin Obaseki to explain his role in the alleged #5.5bn fraudulent dealings involving real estate development.
The call followed a petition on the floor of the lower chamber seeking investigation of the APC candidate by the Federal House of Representatives.
Though the campaign organization of Obaseki had absolved the candidate of the allegation, but the National Secretary 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.
Edo people are wiser now and will never make the mistake of voting for a suspect because they have suffered enough in the past.
