Amosun clarifies allegations of arms dealings

The All Progressives Congress ( APC ) in Ogun state has issues a stern warning warned all financial institutions especially banks not to give outgoing governor of the state, Ibikunle Amosun, loans, overdrafts and other financial instruments, no matter how much he pressures them to.

Amosun, would be handing over to Governor-elect, Dapo Abiodun of the APC in May.

In a statement signed by Tunde Oladunjoye, the party’s publicity secretary in the state, they are aware of Amosun had started to ask banks for frivolous sums in the name of loans, overdrafts and other instruments. Stating clearly that finance bodies who grant such, do so at their own detriment.

Read full statement below:

“It has come to our notice that the outgoing governor has been exerting pressures on banks and financial institutions to grant frivolous loans, overdrafts and other instruments immediately Prince Dapo Abiodun was declared Governor-Elect.”

“We are equally aware that files and other sensitive governments’ documents are being moved out of government offices on the order of the outgoing Governor, His Excellency, Senator Ibikunle Amosun.”

“It is therefore important to let it be known to the concerned public officers that it is part of their duties to protect public properties, including files, documents and information at their disposal.

“As anything contrary to this will be running foul of the laws and their oath of office. The allegiance of the civil servants is to Ogun State and not to any individual, no matter who.

“As for the banks, we want to state categorically that the incoming administration believes so much in the rule of law and due process. Therefore, the administration will not honour any obligation that did not follow due process or any loans that did not receive the prior approval of the State House of Assembly.

“According to the Federal Bureau of Statistics, Ogun State’s Internally Generated Revenue has increased by 590 per cent in eight years totaling N74, 835, 979, 000.51 (seventy four billion, eight hundred and thirty five million, nine hundred seventy nine thousand naira and fifty one kobo).

“Why the outgoing administration still wants “injury-time” loans despite those already incurred, beats one’s imagination and leaves much to be desired. The incoming administration will not honour such shady loans.”
