Speaker reacts to N2.4m alleged fraud


Speaker of the Ondo State House of Assembly, Bamidele Oleyelogun, on Saturday said he has sufficient proof to clear himself of any shady deal on the alleged N2.4 million seminar fraud being investigated by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that the Speaker, who spoke with newsmen in Akure said contrary to media reports, he was never arraigned in court by the EFCC last Tuesday.

He vowed to do everything in his power to clear his name of any blemish.

The speaker wondered why anybody would have linked him with any missing money or misappropriated fund, since he was not the Assembly’s Accounting officer or Auditor to evaluate how money was spent.

The Majority Leader of the House, Oluwole Ogunmolasuyi, while supporting the Speaker’s submission on the alleged fraud, said that “Mr Speaker was not directly involved in any financial transactions.”
