BENIN—THE authorities of Ambrose Alli University, AAU, Ekpoma, Edo State, have issued a seven-day ultimatum to the state chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Dan Orbih, to retract his comment that the eight projects recently commissioned by Governor Adams Oshiomhole were projects of the former Peoples Democratic Party, PDP-led administration or face legal action.
The university described the comment as “clearly misleading and portrays the university and the Visitor as fraudulent,” warning the PDP chairman against dragging the university into politics which it said wwould be resisted.
The university was reacting to a comment by Chief Orbih that the projects commissioned by Governor Oshiomhole in the university last November were projects of the past PDP- led administration.
But reacting in a statement by the Deputy Registrar/Public Relations Officer, Dr Chris Adamaigbo, the university said that the eight projects inaugurated by the governor were fully funded from the N500 million grant released to the university by the state government under the dynamic leadership of the governor.
