Edo Council Secretariat destroyed by fire

The Esan north-east local government area secretariat in Edo State, was consumed by fire in the late hours of Friday, ITRealms reports.

This, ITRealms gathered, happened just few hours after 10 councilors passed a vote of no confidence on the chairman, Hon. Sam Oboh.

Also, ITRealms gathered that Mr. Oboh was said to have ignored numerous invitations by the lawmakers to appear before them to explain alleged financial recklessness and flagrant abuse of due process in the running of the secretariat. Amongst the chairman’s alleged offences included collection of gratuity while still in office, collection of internally generated revenue (IGR) up front to 2020, diversion of compensation meant for traders whose shops were burnt and the collection of over-draft from banks without legislative approval.

A signed resolution by the entire members of the house dated May 26, 2016, with ref No: ENE/C/168 addressed to the executive chairman reads in part:“It would be recalled that the house has been watching your activities for some time now and how you have continually manipulated the internally generated revenue of the council for your personal aggrandizement and as a result hereby passes a vote of no confidence on you.”
