EDHA Crisis: Elizabeth Ativie Claims Official Vehicles Were Gifts From Oshiomole as House Threatens to Sue

It seems the crisis rocking Edo State's House of Assembly is yet to settle as gist has it that the former deputy speaker, Mrs Ativie has vowed not to return some official vehicles that are in her possession.

According to her, the vehicles; Hilux vans, a Prado Jeep and 2016 Model Lexus Jeep were given to her by the immediate past governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole as personal gifts so she would not return them.

She claims, she has already sold the Lexus jeep so she can not return it. She even showed a letter she claims is from the former governor which according to the clerk of the house,Mr. James Omoataman, the letter has been screened by the house.

Reacting to the letter Mrs Aitivie presented, the State House of Assembly claims the signature of the governor on the letter is fake.
“We have compared the signature of the former governor on the said letter and it is not genuine and we hope your client is aware of the consequences of parading such document.

“As your client will recall, the said vehicles were purchased for the use of the office of the speaker when your client occupied the office. Consequently, when she became the deputy speaker, the official vehicles were left with her office whilst alternative arrangement were made for the office of the speaker.

“Despite the clarity of the above, your client deliberately skewed the words used in the purported letter from the former governor, claiming that the former governor wrote to say the vehicles were given to her, which is far from the truth.

“Further, the original documents of the vehicles are still in the possession of the House of Assembly till date which means that title to the vehicles were never transferred or intended to be transferred to your client contrary to your client’s assertions.

“Accordingly, I hereby reiterate my instruction and demand your client’s immediate return of the vehicles attached to the office of the deputy speaker which are still in her possession. “Finally, if your client maintains that she indeed sold one of the vehicles, the Lexus Jeep 2016 model, then we expect that your client will furnish us with the details of sales.”
