- Ahmed made all these known in response to a claim made by Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazak
Abdulfatah Ahmed, former governor of Kwara state, has denied allegation made against his administration by Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazak.
Abdulrazak had alleged that Ahmed's administration sold 110 government properties to friends and cronies while in power.
Ahmed in a statement issued by his media aide, Muyideen Akorede, disputed the figures cited by the Kwara governor.
He consequently absolved his administration of any wrongdoing regarding the sale of government properties.
The former governor also insisted that his administration followed due process in selling some government quarters to civil servants, and members of the 7th Kwara State House of Assembly.
Going further, he said that approval also covered other properties disposed of by his administration with the proceeds paid into government coffers.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that President Muhammadu Buhari waded into the feud between Kwara governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq and former Senate President Bukola Saraki over the recent demolition of Ile Arugbo (old people’s home) in Ilorin, the state capital.
According to the report, the president has set up a private investigative committee to examine the circumstances that warranted the demolition and report to him.
A source quoted in the report stated that President Buhari expressed concern about the crisis, which has dominated the media in the last two weeks.
The former Senate president and his younger sister, Gbemi Saraki, who is a serving minister in Buhari's cabinet, had chided Governor AbdulRazaq over the demolition.
