In response to the Ogun State government’s announcement of a 50 million naira bounty on the killers of the late Director of Finance and Administration, Taiwo Oyekanmi, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is demanding transparency and accountability from Governor Dapo Abiodun.
The party in a statement issued by the party’s Publicity Secretary in the state, Akinloye Bankole questions the circumstances surrounding the murder and the large sum of money involved, calling on the governor to submit himself for investigation.
Akinloye expresses condolences to the family of the deceased and the Ogun State Civil Service, emphasizing the need for the government to address pertinent concerns.
He raises questions about the withdrawal of funds from the Governor’s office, highlighting the absence of police escorts for Mr. Oyekanmi during the transaction.
According to him, the deceased was intentionally exposed to danger and insists on clarity regarding the purpose of the substantial cash withdrawal.
Akinloye on behalf of the party demands answers on whether the withdrawn funds belong to Ogun State government-authorized bank accounts or private accounts using the Governor’s office as a cover.
Stressing the importance of openness and transparency, the party asserts that the Governor must reveal the legitimate owners of the allegedly stolen money, considering his role as a trustee of public assets.
The PDP also expresses skepticism about the timing and motive behind the bounty announcement, cautioning against using it as a mere media stunt.
The party insists that the government must provide honest and detailed information, especially since the police have raised an alarm pointing to an “in-house suspect.”
The PDP calls for a thorough, independent investigation by the relevant committee of the State House of Assembly to uncover the truth.
The PDP underscores the government’s responsibility to the people and insists that Governor Abiodun should not overlook the concerns raised by citizens.
The party advocates for accountability, urging the Governor to fully cooperate with any investigation to ensure justice for the late Finance Director and maintain public trust in the government.
