A governorship aspirant under the All Progressives Congress in Edo State, Hon Dennis Idahosa, said he will look into the loans Governor Godwin Obaseki’s administration has incured in the state if he emerges victorious at the 2024 governorship election.
The governorship contender made the disclosure during an interactive session with members of the Correspondents Chapel of the Edo State Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists.
He opined that Obaseki’s promises to the people have not been fulfilled and therefore his candidate and the Peoples Democratic Party should be voted out of office, according to the Independent.
He revealed that the Edo has become the third most indebted states in the country.
Idahosa maintained that most of the allocations to the state would be used to service loans which is what he would not want if he succeeds in the 2024 polls.
He said, “Edo state currently is the third most indebted state in Nigeria, when there is too much debt, most of the allocations accruing to the state will be used to service them and we cannot sustain that so under my watch as governor, we are going to review most of these loans because some of them were not properly evaluated, I will ensure that is done.
“With what I have done in Ovia Federal constituency, I know that if APC gives me the ticket, with your support and the good people of Edo State, I will win and turn Edo around.”
