Akeredolu to ex-SSG: I didn’t give contract to my in-laws
Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, has denied allegations by the former Secretary to the State Government, Ifedayo Abegunde, that he gave all contracts in the state to his in-laws.
Akeredolu said it was the former SSG pervasive acts that hounded him and others out of his administration.
Speaking through his Senior Special Assistant, Media and Publicity, Ojo Oyewamide, Governor Akeredol, said there was no single road contractor of Igbo extraction.
Akeredolu said documentations relating to contracts execution were not hidden.
His words: “This is far from the truth. Aside the temptation to dismiss this unsubstantiated claim by the facilitators of the imaginary scenario, the fact that such was coming from those whose pervasive acts have haunded them out of government is enough to ignore the story.
:However, it is pertinent to aver that there is no single road contractor of Igbo extraction. Anyone with evidence of such should kindly avail the public of same.
“Documentations relating to contracts execution are not hidden. They are public and therefore, subject to public scrutiny. All road contractors in the State are well known and have nothing to hide.
“Mr. Governor therefore, urges all and sundry to ignore the stories coming from those who thrice on falsehood and fabricated stories to take political decisions.”
