Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State has expressed concern over the assets of the state that could not be accounted for by some of top officials of the state ministry, departments and agencies (MDAs).
Amosun expressed the concern, while reacting to requests of some of the MDAs for project and monitoring vehicles, during last week’s meeting of the treasury board on the Ogun State 2018 budget in Abeokuta.
The governor accused some of the officials of failing to account for most of the trucks that were allotted to them for some special projects.
For instance, he asked some of the officials at the meeting to account for the makeshift structures, computer sets and vehicles allocated for the Homeowners Charter programmes.
The governor said that only five out of the 27 Toyota Hilux vans attached to his office could be accounted for, while the remaining 22 are still being tracked.
Meanwhile, Governor Amosun has explained that part of the $350 million foreign loans approved for his administration by the National Assembly, will be used for the proposed construction and rehabilitation of selected semi-urban and rural roads across the state.
Amosun who made this known while reacting to the estimated budget of the ministry of rural development, said the project will be followed by various rural electrification projects.Please subscribe to our newsletter
