ABEOKUTA — Former Minister of Mine and Steel, Sarafa Ishola, yesterday, accused Governor Ibikunle Amosun-led administration in Ogun State of running the state into bankruptcy through borrowing.
The ex-minister, who spoke with newsmen in Abeokuta, also accused Governor Amosun of crippling the local councils in the state, saying that all the councils were in comatose.
Ishola, who was the Secretary to the State Government during the administration of former governor of the state, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, submitted that unless Amosu’s government was checked, the state might be mortgaged for the future generation.
He said: “I am constrained to notice that the Governor Ibikunle Amosun’s administration is on the verge of making history as an administration that will run the state into bankruptcy with shortest period of its existence.
“This issue of borrowing to pursue projects that are not income-generated should be something that we should seriously look into, so that the state is not mortgage for the future generations to come.”
