Senator Bassey Ewa Henshaw

Senator Omisore In N1.7bn Scam

Following the allegation of diversion of close to two billion naira Cross River’s vote for road network against the impeached Deputy Governor of Osun State, now Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Iyiola Omisore by one of his colleagues in the upper chamber of the National Assembly, Bassey Ewa Henshaw, OSUN DEFENDER has gathered that the Ile-Ife–born politician might have diverted the controversial funds to his campaign machinery preparatory to the 2011 build-up in Osun State.

It would be recalled that the Cross River senator disclosed to his people during a town hall meeting with his constituents in Calabar, the state capital that the appropriation committee headed by Omisore has diverted #1.7 billion meant for the road renovation in the state.

Though, the controversial Omisore did not deny the allegation, he only said that Senator Bassey Ewa Henshaw was only deceiving his people about the disappearance of the fund in the Senate.
