“I am not aware of any ‘massive corruption’ in Dapo Abiodun’s administration.”
Akingbolahan Adeniran, a former Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice in Ogun State has revealed reasons for his resignation from the cabinet of Governor Dapo Abiodun saying he resigned because of personal reasons and not due to “massive corruption” in the government as reportedly alleged.
In a statement issued on Monday and made available to newsheadline247, Adeniran condemned some reports alleging him to have resigned from his post due to corruption in the Abiodun-led administration.
He said, “While it is true that on 8 November 2021, I formally notified His Excellency, Prince Dapo Abiodun, MFR, the Governor of the State, of my decision to resign from the cabinet, I must state that contrary to the online news publications, my reasons for resigning are purely personal.
“I am not aware of any ‘massive corruption’ in the administration.”
Adeniran added that during his time in the cabinet, the present administration was able to reach some milestones such as the improvement of access to justice for the people of the state via the Ogun Public Interest Law Partnership which matches indigent clients with pro bono lawyers.
According to him, the rights of the citizens were more protected during his stint, as he thanked the governor for the opportunity to serve in the cabinet.
I want to assure His Excellency, the Governor and all my colleagues in the Executive Council of the State of my continued support.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed working with such an amazing group of administrators, technocrats, and experts in various fields of endeavour.
“I have learnt a lot from you all and pray that God will continue to use you to improve the lives of the good people of Ogun State.”
