”They invited me, your son, to impeach the governor and I told them clearly , I was not interested.”

Despite shedding light on the attempt to bribe him, Edison Ehie chose not to divulge the identities of the individuals behind the offer.

This decision underscores the complexity and sensitivity surrounding the issue, as revealing such information could potentially lead to further speculation, investigations, and legal ramifications.

Ehie’s reluctance to name names Amy also reflect a desire to maintain a level of discretion or protect himself and others involved from potential retaliation or repercussions.

They gave me all the money that was hidden before, which I rejected . And because I refused, they conspired and declared me wanted,” Ehi added.
