Mimiko's plot to divert N1.5bn uncovered-APC

The All Progressives Congress in Ondo State Saturday alleged it has uncovered another plan by outgoing Gov. Olusegun Mimiko of plans to divert N1.5bn in grants from foreign donors to phony contracts.

 

 “It has come to our knowledge, on good authority, that Ondo State Government, two days ago, specifically Jan. 4, 2017, took receipt of the N1.2 billion physical cash being amount deposited into the account of the Multilateral Relation Department of the Governor’s Office as accumulated grants from foreign donors.

“Confirmed information also shown that another sum of N385m was credited into the account of the Wealth Creation Agency  of Ondo State.”

In a statement issued by its Publicity Secretary, Mr. Abayomi Adesanya, on Saturday the party said that unscrupulous elements within the highest echelon of the outgoing government had activated nefarious plans to siphon the money into private accounts. the money was accumulated foreign grants to Ondo State Wealth Creation Agency (WECA) and Multilateral Relation Department.

  “To perfect this plan, arrangement had been made to transfer the N1.2bn to WECA which has been designated as exit point for the monies.

“Already, high level civil servants in the two departments have been mobilised to begin processing of phony contracts award papers to perfect the looting spree of the total sum of N1.585bn.”

Adesanya described the act as callous and sabotage by some individuals in government to steal public funds as valedictory gifts to themselves and warned civil servants of the consequences of such act.

“Gov. Mimiko, his political appointees as well as civil servants should be put on notice that already the incoming government of our party is in possession of past, current and daily records of financial misdeeds of high elements of the outgoing government.’’
