A video has emerged of Local Government chairmen in Ogun State prostrating before the governor of the state, Dapo Abiodun over controversies on the LG funds.
In the video sighted by ThisNigeria, the ALGON Chairman, Babatunde Emilola-Gazal, who led other chairmen to beg the governor, said, “Your Excellency, we have come here to beg you as a father that you are, as a father of all in the state, we want you to forgive us.
“Your Excellency, if you don’t forgive us, who do we run to? So, on behalf of all of us, I am tendering this apology and, in particular, on behalf of Wale Adedayo.”
The Chairman of Ijebu East Local Government Area of Ogun State, Wale Adedayo, had accused the governor of withholding the LGs’ allocations.
Adedayo also petitioned the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC), calling for the investigation of the governor over the alleged diversion of local government funds.
