Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki has set up a commission of enquiry to probe the contract for the construction of structures and supply of equipment to Benin Central Hospital, awarded by the administration of Adams Oshiomhole.
The commission will be working to ascertain if details of contracts awarded by the APC Chairman were strictly followed, especially the quality of materials, and also determine the extent of irregularities regarding the purchase of equipment among others.
Governor Obaseki’s spokesperson Cruise Osagie in a statement released on Sunday, said the probe was initiated after numerous calls for the Edo State government to look into the contracts in which billions of taxpayers’ money were expended on poorly executed projects under the regime of Adams Oshiomhole.
“The state government will investigate allegations of fraud and irregularities with the contract for procurement of the hospital equipment. The contractors who handled the building had questions to answer, including the shoddy jobs done, among others,” he said.
Aside questioning the contractors for the alleged shoddy job, Osagie also disclosed that individuals contracted to procure the hospital equipment will be called to hear their side of the story.
