Dapo Abiodun to revoke Gov. Amosun’s last-minute contracts, appointments
All Progressive Congress, APC, in Ogun, said that the state’s elected governor, Dapo Abiodun, repealed all new contracts by Governor Ibikunle Amosun’s administration between March and May 28 this year.
The APC has also promised to revoke all appointments and structures of traditional chiefs as well as review jobs for new entrants into the state labor market by the Amosun administration after the governor’s election March 9, which has awarded the victory
This was contained in a statement released yesterday in Abeokuta, the state capital, by the Secretary of Publicity of the Guardian Committee of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the state, Ambassador Tunde Oladunjoye.
He spoke in the context of rumors that Amosun planned to approach the World Bank for $ 350 million in less than three weeks after his administration expired.
Oladunjoye said the party had already warned financial institutions across the country that did not meet the loans, overdrafts and other requests for financial instruments of the outgoing government of the Ibikunle Amosun.
He noted that the outgoing administration led by Amosun had also approved the employment of about 500 new workers in the state’s workforce among those who sat and passed the examination of Administrative Staff College of Nigeria (ASCON).
Oladunjoye accused Amosun of having “last-minute appointments and contracts granted without due consideration by the incoming administration of Prince Dapo Abiodun, despite APC’s prior notice.
“It is morally unacceptable that a Governor with less than one month to the expiration of his term in office will make mass appointments and promotions, thereby committing the incoming administration to unsustainable financial commitments and obligations.
“We hereby alert the general public and those to whom it may concern that ALL appointments, installation of traditional rulers, contracts, commitments and obligations entered into during the transition period after the elections will be reviewed and may not be binding on the new administration.”
