Muhammadu Buhari (rtd), and Sen. Bola Tinubu, the National Leader of the party.

The rally was attended by PDP leaders including Senator Roland Owie, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu and Solomon Edebiri.

He said, “Governor Oshiomhole sat in his office and signed two vouchers to commission projects on 28th and 29th November. In those vouchers, it was written, ‘voucher to commission projects in Edo State by two eminent Nigerians, Retired General Muhammadu Buhari and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’. In those vouchers, the sum of N76 and N66 million were signed away simply to cut tapes for projects that had earlier been commissioned.
