Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has suspended the Chairman of Esan West local government area, Hon Patrick Aguinede, from office over corruption allegations.

This brings to three, the number of chairmen that has been suspended by the Governor in the last three months. The others are Alhaji Aremiyau Aligamhe Momoh of Etsako East and Hon Yakson Musa of Etsako West local government area.

Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftancy Affairs, Mr. Monday Osaigbovo, disclosed that Governor Obaseki has always cautioned them on his zero tolerance for corrupt practices.

Osaigbovo said Aguinede was suspended for a period of two months to allow an investigation into allegations made against him.

According to the commissioner, one of the allegations was that an estate agent petitioned Aguinede that he bought a house for him for N30m and Aguinede refused to pay his agency fees.

Osaigbovo said Aguinede was alleged not to have remitted complete money collected as Internally Generated Revenue.

“The statistics he gave as the number of tricycles and motorcycles operating in Esan West is 3000. If he collected N150 each from them, that amounts to N9m monthly but Aguinede was remitting the only N4.5m.”
