Nigerian Governor uncovers N30bn fraud of state project

The Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, on Monday February 22, 2021, uncovered that the N30billion Benin stormwater project embarked upon by the previous administration was a ploy to defraud Edo people.

Obaseki stated this while inspecting the Textile Mill Road catchment of the project in Benin City.

He said the stormwater project, conceived by the previous administration, was designed not to work for the benefit of Edo people, adding that his administration will probe the project and recover all the money stolen through it.

“The stormwater project was a fraud. It was a contract to defraud Edo people. From what I see in this catchment area, the project was never designed to take water away from the area. The area was never drained.

“You can see the level of what we are doing now compared with what the previous administration did,” he said.
