A former Commissioner of Transport in the administration of Governor Adams Oshiomhole, Orobosa Omo-Ojo, has opened a can of worms on the administration of the comrade governor in a book, “Breach of Trust, An eyewitness account of political events in Edo state before and under Adams Oshiomhole’s watch”.

Omo-Ojo who has since fallen apart with his erstwhile boss, explained his sack as Commissioner in January this year, saying that his removal was because he refused to divulge details of his meetings with some perceived enemies of Governor Oshiomhole.

He alleged in the book that the state government spent N14 billion to design website for the Edo Open Portal project and urged the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) to investigate the project.

According to Omo-Ojo, it would be a cruel fate to Edo people if the EFCC failed to investigate the Open Portal project and others in the ICT including biometrics, oracle, internet provision for Ministries, Department and Agencies (MDAs).

He alleged that the open portal was a deception, designed as a cover-up for the growing criticism of lack of transparency in government operation and a means to justify the $225 million World Bank loan which was equivalent to N50 billion.

Besides, the former Commissioner alleged that Oshiomhole spent N500 million to pursue vice presidential ambition and granted Certificate of Occupancy waiver to Alhaji Aliko Dangote worth N1.08 billion for the establishment of a fertilizer plant, just as he described Oshiomhole’s administration as “mob government where every one contributes to the affairs of the state without a clear direction of government policy.

“Working with Oshiomhole is like watching a circus show. There is never a boring moment. Either he amuses you with sheer energy to talk unending or you are amazed at his self-delusion as he speaks on every subject like an authority

The only way to reduce priceless time wasting during meetings is to allow a monologue. This practice led to poor project execution”, he alleged.

Reacting to the allegations yesterday, Chief Press Secretary to Governor Adams Oshiomhole, Peter Okhiria, said “we have a copy of the book, we will react to the allegations appropriately.”
