Governor Adeleke directs ex-officials to return state property

The Osun State Government has given 48hours ultimatum to former officials to return the state’s property in their possession.

In a statement, the Spokesman to the state governor, Olawale Rasheed, says the directive follows alleged diversion of government assets by top officials of the immediate past administration of Gboyega Oyetola.

“Several official vehicles are missing while official records indicated that two third of former state officials left with fleet of car in their office.

“Most Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) were stripped of operational assets like vehicles, computers and even residential fittings. Residences of some top officials were equally pillaged even to lamp fitting,” the statement reads.

The statement warns that any former official who refuses to comply with the directive will face the full weight of the law.

Earlier in the week, the Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke, immediately after been sworn-in as governor, froze all government accounts and suspended three monarchs and the chairman of the Osun electoral commission.
