Mr Benjamin Atu, Senior Special Assistant (SSA) on media to Edo Deputy Governor, Mr Philip Shaibu, has debunked claims that palliatives were found in the residence of the Deputy Governor in Jattu, Etsako West Local Government Area.
In a statement made available to journalists, Atu, described the allegation as dubious and an attempt by political enemies of the deputy governor to have his residence burgled.
“On their mission to the property of the Deputy Governor I can’t speak until the police conclude their investigation.
The fact that we want to establish is that at least it has been confirmed that no palliative is in the house of the deputy governor.
All palliatives that were sent to Edo North were disbursed directly to the local government for instant distribution to the beneficiaries.
Edo North does not have a central reserve where palliatives are kept. The state has only one centre and that’s not in Edo North.”
