The All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for the September 10 governorship election in Edo State, Godwin Obaseki has refuted claims that he had a case with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
During a parley with newsmen in Benin City, the gubernatorial hopeful, in the course of outlining the kind of government he would run in Edo state, refuted claims generated by PDP activists that he had a case with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
“I don’t have a case with EFCC. I read the story. As you know, I am on the board of several companies and this company in question is a German company and I served on their board and they had a partner who died many years ago. And unfortunately, his estate has not been properly managed, his other businesses have gone bankrupt and there is a petition from their children claiming that this company was owing their father. It is a family having quarrels and all sorts of internal issues. So, they wrote to EFCC and other bodies. So, if somebody is owing you money, are there no courts to go, is it not a civil matter?
But I didn’t manage the company. I was just a shareholder. So, I don’t have anything there. But you know being in politics, you expect everything,” he clarified.
