“Injury Time Loans” that’s what the press has dubbed the outgoing Ogun state governors attempt to make withdrawals from the state government accounts for running the tail end of his administration. The governor who has already been marked down for removal by forces in the party was reported to be pressuring the government banks to release funds for his government, however; the state chapter of APC has issued a stern warning to banks in Ogun State not to yield to threats and pressure from Governor Ibikunle Amosun to release last-minute loans, overdrafts and other financial instruments.

The warning is contained in a statement issued by the publicity secretary of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Tunde Oladunjoye, in Abeokuta the Ogun state capital.

The full statement by the APC;

“It has come to our notice that the outgoing governor has been exerting pressures on banks and financial institutions to grant frivolous loans, overdrafts and other instruments immediately Prince Dapo Abiodun was declared Governor-Elect.

“We are equally aware that files and other sensitive governments’ documents are being moved out of government offices on the order of the outgoing Governor, His Excellency, Senator Ibikunle Amosun.

“It is therefore important to let it be known to the concerned public officers that it is part of their duties to protect public properties, including files, documents and information at their disposal.

“As anything contrary to this will be running foul of the laws and their oath of office. The allegiance of the civil servants is to Ogun State and not to any individual, no matter who.

“As for the banks, we want to state categorically that the incoming administration believes so much in the rule of law and due process. Therefore, the administration will not honour any obligation that did not follow due process or any loans that did not receive the prior approval of the State House of Assembly.

“According to the Federal Bureau of Statistics, Ogun State’s Internally Generated Revenue has increased by 590 per cent in eight years totaling N74,835,979,000.51 (seventy four billion, eight hundred and thirty five million, nine hundred seventy nine thousand naira and fifty one kobo).

“As anything contrary to this will be running foul of the laws and their oath of office. The allegiance of the civil servants is to Ogun State and not to any individual, no matter who.

“Why the outgoing administration still wants ‘injury-time’ loans despite those already incurred, beats one’s imagination and leaves much to be desired. The incoming administration will not honour such shady loans.”

Recall that though a member of the APC, the governor, Amosun, backed the governorship candidate of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) in the state, Mr. Adekunle Akinlade, who lost.
