Report that the representative of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the Edo state gubernatorial election, Mr. Godwin Obaseki is under investigating by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, for fraudulent activity has been denied by the candidate.
Mr. Godwin Obaseki distanced himself from the allegation raised by the late Humphrey Idisi family against a German firm, stating clear that it has nothing to do with him, as he is just a shareholder. Obaseki told news menin Benin city.
“I don’t have a case with the EFCC. I am on the board of several companies. This is a German company that owns rig in Nigeria. They have a partner who died many years ago and unfortunately, his estate has not been properly managed.
“His other businesses have gone bankrupt. The company saw a petition by some of the children claiming that the company was owing their father.
“There was an agreement that showed that the company paid everything due to the man. The family has been having quarrels and internal issues.
“If somebody is owing you, why go to the EFCC? There is a civil process to do so. It has nothing to do with me. I didn’t manage the company. I am just a shareholder and on the board of the company. I didn’t take money from anybody. I have never stolen, I have never taken anybody’s money before.”Share on Facebook
