Whistle blower asks Obaseki to render accounts

A group, George Uboh Whistle-blowers Network, has asked Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State to render the account of his stewardship in the last three years.

In a letter to the governor dated September 14, 2020 and signed by its Chairman, George Uboh, the group asked the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) standard-bearer to shed light on the various financial transactions of his government.

These include:

1. Payments for contracts

2. Salaries

3. Value Added Tax

4. Transfers running to billions of naira.

Uboh said: "Although we found suspicious transactions in multiple years, however, the suspicious transactions became rampant and egregious in 2019, hence, our conclusion that Obaseki needs to explain whether or not."
