The Coalition for Good Governance and Economic Justice in Africa has called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, and the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission, ICPC, to probe the administration of Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State.

The group hinged its call on the reported arrest of the Commissioner for Arts, Culture and Tourism, Mr Osaze Osemwingie-Ero, by the INTERPOL in France in December 2019 for alleged money laundering.

The group called for a public inquiry into the reported allegations of money laundering.

A statement by the group’s Country Director, Mr John Mayaki, also demanded a probe of the memoranda of understanding announced by the Obaseki-led administration involving millions of dollars.

The statement read, “It is safe to say here that public trust has been badly damaged by these allegations of money laundering in Europe.

“The EFCC has to immediately intervene to save the country and the (regime of Major General Muhammadu Buhari) from the looming international embarrassment since major national newspapers already reported the discovery of the dirty money allegedly amounting to $2m.”
