Speak up over allegations of acquiring airline- Jude Ise-Idehen charges Governor Oshiomhole
By Itohan Imade
A former State legislator has charged the Edo state governor, Mr Adams Oshiomhole, to be honest and tell Edo people the truth about the new Airline he allegedly purchased in Cape Verde.
Cape Verde is the small West African island nation, where the governor took his wife, former Miss Lara Forte from in 2014. Jude Ise-Idehen, who represented Ikpoba-Okha lin the state assembly was speaking at a press conference in the state capital, Benin City.
He said all properties illegally acquired by Governor Adams Oshiomhole in Cape Verde or any other part of the world belong to Edo people and will be retrieved once a PDP governor takes office in November.
“I am embarrassed and I am sure many Edo people are…,I read online that a south-south governor with strong links with Cape Verde has launched an which boasts of 11 Commuter aircrafts making it the largest airline in Cape Verde”.
“The online publication also said that the airline may actually belong to Oshiomhole because of its identity given as FORTEADAMS LUXURY FLIGHT; that it may have come from the maiden name of the governor’s wife and his first name”.
Hon Ise-Idehen asked, “how can Oshiomhole who has complained of lean purse and dwindling revenue from the Federation account while overtaxing Edo people do this?”.
“Here is a man who has already mortgaged Edo’s future with billions of dollars in foreign and local debts, acquiring an Airline; all I can say is that such a move under an APC federal government anti-corruption charade is suicidal”.
The former lawmaker said that he is yet to believe that the revelation by the online publication is true as he expects the governor to clear the air. However he said the good news is that the airline is Edo people’s property because when the PDP takes over the government house, it will retrieve all monies and properties illegally invested in foreign venture using stolen funds.
