APC Governorship Aspirant, Hon.Benjamin Adanyi Petitioned Over Stolen Funds.
If there is anything going by the rumours making the rounds of the Majority Leader of Benue State House of Assembly and governorship aspirant under the platform of the APC, Hon. Benjamin Adanyi, then this could mark a twist in turn of his governorship ambitions. There is a petition going round the State by one APC chieftain from Obi local government, Hon. Obaike Ode Joseph. According to the petitioner, Hon. Adanyi was involved in a fraud when he was given a large sum of money running into millions of naira for the purchase of vehicle for himself and colleagues in Benue State House of Assembly. He was accused of diverting the money for private use which was investigated by the EFCC and found culpable of the offence. Speculation were also rife that Hon. Adanyi pleaded guilty of the offence and in order to get a soft landing, have since been returning the said sum of money that he fraudulently diverted.
According to the petitioner, it will be disastrous for APC to field such a candidate in the general election and urge the party leaders to look back at the Cardinal Agenda of the party to fight economic fraud/corruption in various degrees. In strong terms, he warned against allowing such people like Hon. Adanyi to parade themselves as aspirant under the platform of the party which in otherwords contradict the principle and manifesto of the party.
The petition by the APC chieftain also accuses Hon. Adanyi of bankruptcy. According to the report, he collected a lump sum amounts of money up to the tune of One Hundred Million naira (N100,000,000) from NEXIM Bank and has defaulted in paying back the loan which now have an accumulation of interest up to One Hundred and Sixty Five Million naira (N165,000,000).
As at the time of filling this report, the leadership of the party is said to be soul searching for a credible candidate in order not to repeat the same mistake they made when they gave the governorship ticket to incumbent governor, Samuel Ortom which proved to be a collateral damage to the State.
Below are copies of the petition.
