Ogun state gov, Abiodun denies allegation of LG fund diversion

The Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, on Tuesday, denied the allegation that he was diverting the statutory Federal Allocation due to the state’s Local Governments in the last two years.

The governor said his administration had to augment the funds allocated to local governments in the state to enable the council chairmen to meet their obligations.

The Chairman of Ijebu East Local Government Area of Ogun State, Wale Adedayo had in a letter written to former Governor, Chief Olusegun Osoba accused the governor of diverting the statutory allocations and over ten billion naira fund of the Subsidy Reinvestment and Empowerment Programme.

Adedayo also claimed that the 10 per cent of the state’s Internally Generated Revenue, which the constitution also stipulated should go to the local governments has not been given since Abiodun got into office.
