I can swear in Oba shrine PDP did not offer us money —Edo Dep Speaker


Suspended Deputy Speaker of Edo State

House of Assembly, Mr. Festus Ebea, has said that

the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, did not offer

any of the members that defected to PDP from

the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, money

to defect.

He added that he was ready to go to the Oba of

Benin shrine to swear that they were not offered

money to dump the APC.

Ebea, who spoke with Aviation reporters at the

Muritala Muhammed Airport, Lagos, said it was

the state governor, Adams Oshiomole, who

offered him money not to defect to PDP, adding

that the current crisis rocking the Edo Assembly

was due to the high handedness of the APC

leadership in the state.

Edo State Assembly has been unable to sit as a

full House since June when thugs evaded the

premises and members engaged in a free-for-all.

Two factions of the House have emerged with 15

APC members belonging to one faction, while the

other nine members, who are now PDP members

in another.

Ebea, who is the leader of the PDP said “We are

challenging him,(Oshiomole), let’s go to the Oba’s

palace. I am a Christian, a communicant. I now

said God because we are Africans, let me get to

the level that people will really say, he is trying to

prove his innocence. Let’s go to the Oba shrine

and swear on who collected money. You heard

that I collected N50 million from PDP or N75


“I will swear that if PDP ever offered me money, I

will swear even with my family, then Governor

Oshiomhole too will swear if PDP actually gave

me money and after that I will equally asked him

to swear if he offered me money or not, because I

was offered money by APC and I refused. Yes,

Oshiomhole shared money to the so-called APC

members. He offered them money and they know


He accused the governor of high handedness and

betraying APC’s founding members in the state.

“Before, people used to say Oshiomhole is the

man of the people but he automatically changed.

When they shout President Goodluck Jonathan is

ruling with impunity or that ‘they stopped my

plane,’ don’t listen to them. Governor Oshiomhole

is the greatest peddler of impunity.”
