EDHA Crisis: Mrs Ativie Offers to Return Cars After Ex Gov. Oshiomole Denied Giving Her

After insisting that some official vehicles were given to her by the former governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomole, EDHA member and former speaker, Mrs. Elizabeth Ativie, has agreed to return all the vehicles in her possession.
This is coming after the former governor denied giving her the vehicles. He admitted giving her in her official capacity as the speaker then and that they were not meant for personal use. He went further to request that the state government should prosecute her for stealing if found guilty.

A political chieftain in the state, Mr. Charles Idahosa, has however collaborated Mrs Ativie's story revealing that the present speaker was even there when she was given the cars. He claims to have been present during the negotiations.

“She eventually stepped down and begged she should be allowed to go with all the paraphernalia of office, including the cars, which Oshiomhole agreed to, with a back up letter. “He, Adjoto created Ativie. I was at the meeting. They made Ativie Speaker and when they were negotiating they were all part of it. They should call her back since they have lifted suspension on others, let them buy vehicles for the new Speaker​ and leave her alone.”
In related development, the PDP in the State has called for the arrest of the former governor and Mrs Ativie. In their statement, they wondered if the governor has the right to gift her or anyone government property.

“That Adams Oshiomhole by gifting out the government vehicles in the circumstances which he said he did, was offering a bribe to a government official?

“We want to state that Edo PDP is doing this in the interest of Edo people and its assets. A legal resolution of this issue will be a check on the conduct and behaviour of future governors and elected officers of the State and Nigeria at large.

“A governor must know the limits of his powers and how to exercise them. He must know that deceit and bribery are not acceptable.”
