As Edo residents keep preparing for hitch free election in the forthcoming gubernatorial polls, the All Progressives Congress, APC, candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has condemned the cut in funds allocated to the Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma by the Obaseki-led government.
He says the underfunding of the institution has had disastrous effects on its ability to meet its financial obligation to staff, fund research, and raise the standard of learning at the institution.
Pastor Ize-Iyamu was speaking at Emaudo, Ekpoma, at a campaign rally to round off his tour of the district following previous stops at Igueben, Ubiaja, Uromi, and Irrua where large crowds turned out to welcome him.
He said, “The subvention to Ambrose Alli University when Comrade Adams Oshiomhole was Governor was N250million. But the Governor who pretends to love Esanland reduced it to N96million per month”
According to Ize-Iyamu, the deliberate underfunding of the institution, which led to its obtaining a bank loan to pay July salaries, and the lack of recorded achievements in Edo Central by Governor Godwin Obaseki, expose the falsehood of his ‘Esan Agenda’ campaign gimmick which he says he has no intention of fulfilling.
