Edo state permanent secretary fired over N283m budget padding

Published

First let me take you through what budget padding means so you can understand the offence committed by Edo state perm sec. Dr. (Ms) Osayuware Idahosa.

Padding the budget means making the budget proposal larger than the actual estimates for the project. This is done either by increasing a project’s expenses or decreasing its expected revenue. Many see budget padding as unethical, but its practitioners defend it on the grounds of practicality.

Godwin Obaseki, Edo state governor,  has ordered the sack of the state’s permanent secretary  in the Ministry of Youth and Special Duties, Dr. (Ms) Osayuware Idahosa, for padding of the  budget for the conduct of primary school examination to the tune of N283 million. Three other civil servants involved were sent on suspension for their role in the scam.
According to reports, Dr. Idahosa was handed over to the State Civil Service Commission for appropriate action, in line with the rules and guidelines of the state civil service. Other state workers who were also involved in the scam are: 
Barr. S. A. Erhunmwunse Edokpayi, 
Mrs. E.I. Ero-Ugiagbe and 
Mr. Lucky Adagbonyin. 
They were penalized with an indefinite suspension without pay and would be investigated by a panel to be set up by the state government.
Addressing newsmen after the Exco meeting, the state’s Commissioner for Communication and Orientation,  Paul Ohonbamu, said that the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Prof. Yinka Omorogbe, submitted a report on the panel of inquiry into the conduct of the 2016/2017 Primary School Leaving Certificate Examination. Ohonbamu said the State Executive Council similarly  set up a committee headed  by Employment and Wealth Creation Commissioner  Emmanuel Usoh  to investigate the removal  of about 350 private schools from the list of eligible schools to participate in the Primary School Leaving Certificate Examination and also the conditions that led to the relisting of these schools shortly after they were delisted.

A 39-year old woman, Iwuagwu Onyinyechi, has been apprehended by the Ogun police command after she defrauded a Christian church the sum of N100m, under the disguise of assisting the church to raise fund for her charity programme. Onyinyechi was able to defraud the church with forged documents three good times.

The police command in a statement read by its spokesman on Sunday Abimbola Oyeyemi, said Onyinyechi’s arrest followed a complain filed by a lawyer of the church, Godswill Ojakovo, to the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, in which he said that his client, the church, was defrauded by Onyinyechi through an act of forgery.

According to the spokesman, Oyeyemi, the suspect claimed to have obtained a Local Purchase Order (LPO) from a property company and pleaded to the church to help fund the LPO, after which a sum of N33.118m was successfully transferred into to her bank account.

While the church was awaiting the repayment of the loan, Onyinyechi came with another two LPOs she claimed she got from a Catholic Hospital, Iju and a private school in Ikorodu, Lagos State. Another sum of N77m was given to her, after convincing the church with relevant documents and proofs to back her claims.

But as soon as Onyinyechi got the last payment in September 2018, she went loose and this prompted the church to make discreet inquiries about the LPOs she submitted and found out that they were forged.
