Babajide Odusolu, the immediate past Managing Director, Ogun State Property and Investment Corporation (OPIC) has said he would appear before the State House of Assembly for interrogation against alleged sharp practices during his tenure.
Odusolu said this in a statement issued and made available to PLATFORMTIMES on Monday.
The statement reads “My attention has been drawn to a publication by one Laide Raheem writing for Sunnewsonline.
“In the said publication, the gentleman alluding to unnamed sources alleges that the Ogun State House of Assembly uncovered sharp practices during my tenure as the MD of OPIC.
“This laughable and unfortunate accusation beggars belief as the testaments to the careful management of OPIC won both the corporation and my good self several awards before and after my tenure in Office.
“It is important to clarify that whilst indeed I received an official invitation to appear before the Ogun State House of Assembly Committee on Public Accounts, this invitation is scheduled for 10am tomorrow – 13th of October, 2020 and I intend to be present to defend both my honor and the integrity of a Corporation that I proudly served as the first non-career Managing Director in its history.
“The truth about the alleged earlier invite was that I received a call from officials of the House of Assembly and I told them clearly that I had long standing prescheduled obligations and I was not in a position to attend a hearing which not only came at short notice but was not sent to my correct address. I availed the officials with my correct address and we agreed to schedule this hearing for tomorrow.
“I look forward to seeing evidences of these spurious allegations and I am ready to provide answers to all questions by the esteemed house of assembly”.
