Karma is at the doorstep of every man.  Only time tells when everyone will receive his own fair share of it.  The immediate past National Chairman of the ruling All Progress Congress party and the former Governor of Edo State, Adams Aliu Oshiomhole has every reason to be sad, depressed, and frustrated as his past involving diversion of over N100billion and $75million may soon be brought bare before him in the court of the land.  

Allegations of corruption, diversion of public fund and falsification of his academic credentials may drown him from fairy national stance. Untamed corruption that allegedly characterized his administration as the then Edo State Government are being currently revisited by the anti-corruption agencies, LeadingReporters can authoritatively reveal.
