Ogun State Government has said that transition committee set up by the governor-elect, Dapo Abiodun, will not be allowed to have access to the state-owned facilities for inspection utill few days to May 29, 2019.
This was contained in a letter from the Office of the Secretary to the State Government, which was obtained by our correspondent in Abeokuta, the state capital, on Thursday.
Gateway times gathered that the letter was a response to a request made by the transition committee chaired by the deputy governor-elect, Noimot Salako-Oyedele.
The committee requested to access some key government facilities for inspection.
But the Secretary to the State Government, Taiwo Adeoluwa, said the facilities were being used for government business.
The letter dated May 8, 2019, read, “I wish to restate that his excellency, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has directed that your committee shall be offered full cooperation and assistance in the discharge of your mandate.
“The challenge, however, appears to be that most of the facilities indicated in your text message – the Valley View Auditorium, the Presidential Lodge, Mitros, June 12 Cultural Centre, Stadium – are currently being used for the routine business of governance and therefore may not be available until about a few days to the May 29 inauguration as we had duly notified during our inaugural joint meeting of Monday, April 29, 2019.
