To clear the air and set the records straight on ICPC news release and posts on social media titled “On-going CPTG Exercise: Relief in Sight for Otuo Community in Edo State,” The Commission wishes to state that the news release affirmed that Hon. Pally Iriase had explained that the ambulance was in his compound “to avoid being vandalised as the State Government was yet to commission the hospital for use”.
The release further established that it was Hon. Iriase who “revealed that keys to the ambulance were with the community elders”. This obviously demonstrates good faith and that he didn’t keep the ambulance for himself.
The release also established that ICPC found brand new, unopened equipment and supplies in the hospital giving credence to the fact that the Hon. Iriase – sponsored constituency project for Otuo Women and Children Hospital had been duly executed.
