The Edo State Government has denied owing the late former Chief Coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria, Shuaibu Amodu, N25 million.

In a statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Peter Okhiria, on Wednesday, the government described as totally false and misleading reports that the state government owed the late Amodu Shuaibu N25 million.

The Edo government also described as patently false the contents of a letter in circulation purported written by the late Shuaibu Amodu, adding that the letter contained claims that have no bearing with the financial transactions of Edo State Government.

”All workers, from lowest to the highest paid, including Committee Members are enrolled in our Oracle-based payment system and we do not owe anyone,” Okhiria stated.

Here is the full statement issued by the Edo government on the matter:
