This was recently revealed by Ebegbulem, the Commissioner for Special Projects in Imo State.
According to him, Andrew Momodu has always been an aide to Obaseki, so the rumors linking him to Oshiomhole are false and wrong.
He added that Momodu has been with Governor Godwin Obaseki right from the inception of the administration and he was even a known close associate of the Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu.
His words, “Momodu has been with Governor Godwin Obaseki right from the inception of the administration. He is also a known close associate of the Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu. I am shocked that they are now describing him as an aide to Oshiomhole. The same Momodu was mentioned in Comrade Oshiomhole’s petition to the Inspector General of Police as one of the persons who was alleged to have led thugs to attack the residence of Comrade Oshiomhole in Benin City.”
“However, we are aware of where this misinformation is coming from. I am shocked that the governor’s spokesman will deliberately misinform the public and members of the PDP who are already worried by the imminent defeat they will face on September 19. The said Momodu has been in the administration of Obaseki from the beginning, he has only gone to join Obaseki in the PDP.”
