The All Progressives Congress in Ogun State has accused Ibikunle Amosun, outgoing governor of Ogun State of last-minute award of contracts.
The party also accused him of illegal sale and auctioning of government properties, adding that it was aimed at frustrating the administration of incoming governor, Dapo Abiodun.
The APC raised the alarm in a statement issued by Tunde Oladunjoye, Publicity Secretary of the Caretaker Committee of the party in the state.
“It has come to our notice that the outgoing administration of Senator Ibikunle Amosun is busy with last-minute award of contracts, selling and auctioning of government properties and secret recruitments into the civil service, in a bid to tie the hands of the incoming governor, Mr Dapo Abiodun,” the statement reads.
“While we find these reported last-minute contracts, withdrawals from treasury, sale of land and illegal recruitment of Senator Amosun’s cronies into senior positions of the Ogun State Civil Service very shocking, our party wishes to warn the members of the general public that such hurried transactions would not necessarily be binding on the incoming administration.”
The party however urged “Ogun State’s senior civil servants not to be part of the desperate moves of the departing governor to undermine socio-economic stability of our state, by engaging in, condoning or being part of any act that breaches or constitutes a flagrant abuse of laid-down rules, regulations and due process.”
“It is our belief that an administration with less than two months to hand over should, by now, be preparing its handover notes for a smooth transition, instead of digging pits for the incoming government.” the statement reads.
“May we also reiterate here that all loans, overdraft and financial obligations that do not follow due process, including the approval of the Ogun State House of Assembly, would not be honoured. To be forewarned is to be forearmed.”
