EDO State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, yesterday, accused Governor Adams Oshiomhole and some of his political appointees of violating the State Procurement Law by releasing 75 per cent as mobilization fee to contracting firms executing projects at the Edo University, Iyamho as against the 25 per cent stipulated by the law.
One of such violations the party said was alleged approved payment by the governor of N1.4Billion to Vamed Engineering Nig Ltd January 14, 2016 for the supply, installation, training and maintenance of medical equipment for the accident and emergency ward as well as the ward complex at the Central Hospital Benin-City, claiming that the sum was to be part of the 2016 budget of the state Ministry of Health when no appropriation had been made for 2016 financial year.
He was also alleged to have wired N1.2 billion without approval from the Edo State House of Assembly from the budget of N3.5 billion for the construction of the new accident and emergency ward complex and renovation of existing structures at the Central Hospital Benin contained in the capital budget of the Ministry of Health in the 2015 budget.
The party vowed to ensure that officials of the state government involved in what it described as mindless looting of the state resources though expenditures not budgeted for in the newly established Edo University Iyamho, EUI, were removed from office and prosecuted.
