Oshiomhole,  at Government House, Benin City, insisted that government had perfected plans to sell the house so as to use the proceeds to build a five-star hotel and also develop the proposed Benin City business district, adding that the previous PDP governments in the state abandoned the house which, according to him, led to its current dilapidated state.

He said that contrary to PDP insinuation, the sale of the house would be transparent.

He said: “For us, we decided to even advertise the sale but if it had been the PDP, they would not have even advertised it. The PDP government sold all kinds of property in Benin GRA.

We don’t have any guest house because those property were sold. And none of them was advertised. One of the PDP senators acquired a land there for less than one million naira.”

  1. The PDP led federal government have in the name of privatization sold off almost everything Nigeria has since 1999- date & yet, just one unfunctional buildind to be sold by the APC led Edo state government is anti Edo people in the minds of the Edo state chapter of the PDP. I think this Dan Orbhi man does not think before talking. Of what economic benefits is the Edo Lagos house to the government & people of Edo state? Gov Adams Oshiomohle should sell off the property & channel the proceeds to better the lives of the ordinary Edo citizens. He is a tested & trusted man to move the state forward, unlike his predecessor PDP govs who had no clue about governance. Dan Orbhi should hence forth keep quiet if he cannot constructively critisize the Edo state government. Adams Oshiomohle “CARRY GO” because na you be the man, & we believe in you.
