Former Governor of Osun State, Adegboyega Oyetola has denied misappropriating funds while in office.
Governor of Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke had accused his predecessor, Gboyega Oyetola of financial misconduct.
According to him, despite the huge debt left by the previous administration, there is little or nothing to account for it.
However, spokesperson to Oyetola, Ismail Omipidan in a statement statement Today, described the claims as false, adding that Oyetola never borrowed a dime while in office, and that he left N14 billion naira in the state account.
Part of his statement reads,
“I insist for the umpteenth time that my principal never took any loan facility for the four years he used in office.
In my principal’s welfare address, he stated it clearly, that like every other state, we benefitted N3 billion on monthly basis for six months from the Federal Government as budget support.
“This money was given to all the 36 states of the country without requesting. You cannot categorise that as loan.
“So the new governor does not understand the working of government and he should have allowed those that understand the rudiment to explain it to him. So that he won’t be coming to the public to embarrass himself the way he did.
“We also left N14 billion behind. They should tell the people how much they met in the state coffers.
