Ogun State Caretaker Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Friday warned members of the general public as against last minute transactions with the current state government.
 
It disclosed that loans, overdraft and financial obligations, that does not not follow due process, would not be honoured by the incoming government.
According to a statement by its Publicity Secretary, Tunde Oladunjoye, last-minutes awards of contracts, withdrawals from treasury, sales of land and illegal recruitment of Senator Ibikunle Amosun’s cronies into senior positions of the Ogun State Civil Service would not be necessarily binding on the new administration.
He described the purported report as shocking, saying the current administration should, by now, be preparing its handover notes for a smooth  transition, instead of digging pits for the incoming government.
Oladunjoye urged senior civil servants not to be part of the desperate moves of the departing Governor to undermine socio-economic stability of the State.
The statement reads: ” 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.
“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.
We urge 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 breaches or constitute a flagrant abuse of laid-down rules, regulations and due process.”
“It is our belief that an 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. May we also reiterate here that all loans, overdraft and financial obligations, that do not follow due process, including the approval of the Ogun State House of Assembly, would not be honoured. To be forewarned is to be forearmed”, the statement concluded.
