The Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke, has denied withdrawing N5 billion from the state’s account and awarding contract for the reconstruction of the road leading to the Adeleke University in Ede.

His spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed, said this on Wednesday in Osogbo, stressing that the allegation being peddled on the social media was a lie from demented minds.

“The public will recall that Adeleke had, during his inauguration, announced the freezing of all the state and local governments’ accounts.

“That was done right at the venue of inauguration before he had any access to government’s records and finances.

“How can such amount be withdrawn from state account on the day of inauguration when the new leader had no access to state accounts?” he asked

Rasheed appealed to members of the public to ignore the rumour.

He described the story as complete falsehood and malicious misinformation.

“The new government is still settling down and has not awarded any contract.

“The reconstruction of the said road is a project of the Federal Government to service the Federal Polytechnic, Ede. It has been ongoing since the time of the Oyetola administration.

“We urge the public to disregard the report as it is a failed attempt to undermine the integrity of the state governor and that of the administration.

“We repeat, for the sake of emphasis, that Adeleke has not awarded any contract since assumption of office on November 27.”  (GBN)
