Group to EFCC: probe Delta PDP chair
A group, Delta Patriotic Network (DPN), has petitioned the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to investigate the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman in Delta State, Peter Nwaoboshi, for alleged corruption.
The group alleged that Nwaoboshi used his office to amass illegal wealth.
The petition by DPN’s National President Ojein Samuel; National Vice President Okotete Tony and National Secretary Oromoni Zuokumor, alleged that Nwaoboshi collected money from government agencies and received payments for contracts badly executed.
The group also alleged that Nwaoboshi built two mansions in Asaba and Ibusa for over N1billion.
The PDP Chairman said the petitioners were chasing dead issues, alleging “they are being used by some disgruntled politicians”.
He said he welcomed investigation by any anti-graft agency, adding that he had nothing to hide as a politician and businessman.
“All the issues they raised were investigated over three years ago by EFCC and I have been given a clean bill of health. I don’t have anything to hide and I’m ready for a fresh investigation.
“I have been involved in genuine business and I am available for investigation.
“But nobody should take them serious because they are idle and ready tools in the hands of some disgruntled politicians.”
