Graft allegation: Ekiti Assembly recants, denies probing Oni
Ekiti State House of Assembly has denied that it is probing former Governor Segun Oni, explaining that the query about Oni, submitted by its Public Accounts Committee as part of the 2015 report by the state’s Auditor-General, has been quashed for lacking substantial evidence of misuse of public funds.
In a release, Chairman House Committee on Information, Samuel Omotoso, said that ex-govenor was not indicted by the said report for alleged misuse of Public funds.
“We can confirm that the House of Assembly sat on Thursday, October 19 and adopted the 2015 reports of the Public Accounts Committee and has not indicted the former Governor of Ekiti State, His Excellency, Engr Segun Oni.
The house has no pecuniary interest other than that of the People of Ekiti State and hence will not cry foul where there is none.”
