He revealed this in a recent statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Communication Strategy, Crusoe Osagie.
According to him, the petition to the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC) published in the media on Tuesday, Aug. 4, is baseless and false, and it is only meant to tarnish his age.
He added that Obaseki is currently in charge of one of the most transparent states in Nigeria when it comes to the management of finances.
His words, “Our attention has been drawn to the baseless petition to the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC) published in the media on Tuesday, Aug. 4.
“In the petition, one Andrew Eboigbe, who is said to be a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ward 3, Orhionmwon Local Government Area of Edo, accused Gov. Obaseki of unfair award of contracts to companies.
“The allegation is false and a feeble attempt to tarnish the image of the Edo State Governor.
“Edo, under Gov. Obaseki, prides herself as one of the most transparent states in the management of finances.
“As a matter of fact, Edo has been rated highly by the World Bank and other development institutions for her openness and transparency in the allocation of scarce resources, beginning with the process of making her budget, awards of contracts and release of funds to contractors’’.
He stated that the Edo government understood that during the electioneering times that the state is in currently, such bogus and baseless claims could be sponsored the opposition.
“As we head into the election, our eyes are constantly on the ball and we will not be distracted by such falsehoods.”
