28. Debt profile under Godwin Obaseki has risen to over $277.74 MILLION DOLLARS (over 100 BILLION NAIRA).

29. Obaseki spent highly inflated sums of money to train primary school teachers on how to use the computer at an incredible cost of N1.5 MILLION NAIRA per teacher. He used his cronies from Lagos pretending as consultants to siphon Edo money.


30. In 2016, Godwin Obaseki increased his security vote from 500 million to 650 MILLION NAIRA per month. He has pocketed 24 BILLION NAIRA of Edo money in the past 32 months as governor in the name of security votes.

 Insecurity is however on the increase in Edo State because Obaseki gives a paltry 5 million naira monthly to Edo State police command to combat crime.

40. Obaseki has secretly reached an agreement to hand over power to his deputy, Philip Shaibu in 2024 if he wins re-election, yet at the same time, he is currently promising and deceiving Edo central of Esan governorship in 2024. 

This secret pact was the reason behind his insistence on having a joint ticket with Philip while negotiating for an alternative party platform, which eventually cost him an extra N2 BILLON NAIRA to the initial N6 BILLION NAIRA (making N8 BILLION) to secure the PDP Governorship ticket from the PDP
