The All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused the outgoing governor of Ogun, Ibikunle Amosun, of engaging in last-minute sales and auctioning of government properties and award of contracts.
The party in Ogun state made the allegations in a statement in which it further accused the governor of engaging in secret recruitments into the civil service.
The party’s statement released by Tunde Oladunjoye, its publicity secretary in the state, added that the governor was doing these to create a challenge for the incoming Dapo Abiodun, according to Sahara Reporters.

"It has come to our notice that the outgoing administration of Senator Ibikunle Amosun is busy with last-minute award of contracts, selling and secret recruitment into the civil service, in a bid to tie the hands of the incoming governor, Dapo Abiodun.
"While we find the reported last-minute contracts, withdrawals from the treasury, sale of land and illegal recruitment of Senator Amosun's cronies into the senior positions of the Ogun state civil service very shocking, our party wishes to warn the members of the general public that such hurrried transactions would not necessarily be binding on the incoming administration.
"We urge Ogun state's senior civil servants to not be part of the desperate moves of the departing governor to undermine socio-economic stability of our state, by engaging in, condoning or being part of any act that breaches or constitutes a flagrant abuse of laid-down rules, regulations and due process.
"It is our belief that an administration with less than two months to hand over should, by now, be preparing its handover notes for a smooth transition, instead of digging pits for the incoming government.

"May we also reiterate here that all loans, overdraft and financial obligations that do not follow due process, including the approval of the Ogun state House of Assembly, would not be honoured. To be forewarned is to be forearmed,” the statement said.
Legit.ng earlier reported that a member of the House of Representatives, Umar Bago, warned that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is not guided by individual thought but on the party's constitution and principles.
Bago while speaking with journalists in Abuja, on Wednesday, April 3, on the issue of leadership at the 9th Assembly speaking said the constitution of the APC and that of Nigeria is clear on the issue of equity across boards.
