Edu was a former woman leader of the ruling party.

On Thursday, the APC governors, also known as the Progressives Governors Forum (PGF), said the case against Edu “are just allegations”.

“And in the wisdom of the president, she is being investigated, it is after the investigation is concluded and the report made available to the government that it will make a final decision.”
