Prominent citizens of Ogun state are to lead stakeholders to the Presidency in Abuja, to protest the formula being used for sharing of revenue from the federation account.
Governor Ibikunle Amosun stated this while presenting cheques totalling N1.6 billion as severance allowances to former political office holders, who served under the Daniel administration between 2007 and 2011, and those who served under him between 2011 and 2015 at the Arcade ground, Oke Mosan in Abeokuta.
The Governor said that arrangement for staging the proposed protest had been finalised.
Amosun handing out the cheques to the beneficiaries, explained that the payment is being made without considering the political affliation of the beneficiaries.
Governor Amosun said whatever their political affliation, the former political appointees had served the state and deserve to be rewarded.
