2 weeks ago Dammylink 0
The former Ondo State deputy governor, Agboola Ajayi, has returned three of the four official vehicles attached to him to the state government.
The state government had in two weeks ago, alleged that Mr Ajayi refused to return four official vehicles at the expiration of his tenure in February despite entreaties made to him. The former deputy governor claimed he was entitled to the vehicles as his retirement benefits.
Further clarifications from the government, however, showed that the vehicles were not supposed to be his retirement benefits, as no extant law backed his claims. The Ondo State governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, a lawyer, had also clarified that although other states
enacted laws on pensions for governors and their deputies, nothing like that had been done in the state.
The vehicles retrieved from Mr Ajayi on Monday include a Toyota Landcruiser Jeep and two Toyota Hilux vans, all 2019 models.
The Commissioner for Information, Donald Ojogo, who confirmed the retrieval of the vehicles, in a statement on Monday, said efforts were on to recover the remaining vehicles in the possession of the former deputy governor.
