The All Progressives Congress in Ogun state has condemned what it described as eleventh hours appointments, unmerited promotions and financial transactions being embarked upon by the outgoing Governor of the state, Senator Ibikunle Amosun
The release signed by the spokesman of the party in the state, Tunde Oladunjoye read, “It has come to our notice that the outgoing administration of His Excellency Senator Ibikunle Amosun, is busy with last minute awards of contracts, selling and auctioning of government properties, and secrete recruitments into the civil service, in a way to tie the hands of the incoming Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun.
He stressed, “While we find these reported last-minutes awards of contracts, withdrawals from treasury, sales 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 urged Ogun State’s top 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 might breach or constitute a flagrant abuse of laid-down rules, regulations and due process.
They opined administration with less than two months to handover, should, by now, be preparing its handover notes for a smooth transition, instead of digging pits for the incoming government.
They stated categorically and unequivocally that all loans, overdraft and financial obligations, that did not follow due process, including the approval of the Ogun State House of Assembly, would not be honoured.
