Oshiomhole dares Okonjo-Iweala to sue him

04 December 2015, 16:13

Benin - Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, has said that he is ready to receive litigation letters from the former Minister of Finance Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, if she plans to institute any legal action against him for linking her to the alleged $2.1bn arms probe, Punch reports.

Oshiomhole, who spoke through his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Kassim Afegbua, on Thursday, said that while he awaits the letter from her lawyers, the former minister should explain to Nigerians how so much money was allegedly diverted unnoticed under her watch, rather than sweeping the issue under the carpet.

Following Oshiomhole’s attempt to link Okonjo-Iweala to the ongoing $2 billion arms deal probe which she had denied, the ex-minister in a statement by her Media Aide, Paul Nwabuikwu, stressed that she has absolutely nothing to do with the issue.

She then stated that it was an abuse of public office, the judicial process and her human rights for the Edo State Governor whom she stopped from taking a highly suspicious N15 billion loan to make false allegations against her while hiding behind the constitutional immunity granted state governors.
