The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo State has accused Governor Godwin Obaseki of using the Central Bank of Nigeria Anchor Borrowers Scheme to defraud farmers in the State.
It alleged Governor Obaseki asked farmers to pay the sum of N2000 into a Sterling Bank account as one of the criteria to benefit from the scheme.
The PDP said Obaseki ended up ripping the farmers of billions of naira while the farmers did not get any loan.
State Chairman of the PDP, Chief Dan Orbih, who stated this at a campaign rally of the party in Abudu, headquarters of Orhionmwon local government area urged Obaseki to fulfill the promise to the farmers or refund their money.
Chief Orbih, who received defectors from the All Progressives Congress, told the people of Abudu to vote for all candidates of the PDP for a better Nigeria.
Orbih said the re-election of Senator Matthew Urhoghide would give Edo South a ranking senator status and possibility of a principal officer in the senate.
He said the manifesto of the APC has dashed the hopes of Nigerians.
Senator Urhoghide who reeled out his achievements informed the people that his move to turn the College of Education located at Abudu into a Federal University of Education has scaled through second reading.
Urhoghide said the election is battle between the PDP and visible underdevelopment, hunger and suffering currently being experienced in the country.
He urged the people to re-elect him so he could add to to the existing constituency projects he attracted to the locality.
