Ondo APC accuses Mimiko of planning to loot state treasury

The All Progressives Congress in Ondo State on Tuesday alleged that the outgoing governor, Olusegun Mimiko was trying to divert government funds during the last few weeks of his tenure.

In a statement by the publicity secretary of the party, Omo’ba Abayomi Adesanya, the APC said the governors was awarding huge contracts to his friends.

He said, “The outgoing Governor Olusegun Mimiko has concluded plans to award contracts worth N62bn between November 2016 and February 2017 when he would be vacating office as the Chief Executive Officer of the State.

“Among the contracts to be awarded is the 28KM ABOTO-ATIJERE road, in Ilaje Local Government Area of the state, to the cost of N12bn, given to ZHIJIANG Construction Company Ltd, that Governor Mimiko will sign-off this week without bidding.

“The Governor’s plans is to pay 75 per cent upfront of the total contract sum without following due process as a way to embezzle the state fund and leave the treasury empty for the successor government. This is against the social contract he swore with the people.

“We were reliably informed that ZHIJIANG Construction Company Ltd is owned by a close ally of the Governor but in a matter of days, our investigation will confirm this among other corrupt plans of Dr. Olusegun Mimiko to plunge our state into serious financial debt after his tenure.”
