The Governorship candidate of the Zenith Labour Party in Ondo State, Agboola Ajayi, has accused the State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, getting a security vote of N750million Naira and an imprest of about N150 million monthly.
The state Deputy Governor further stated that he earns N12 million naira and not the N13 million as claimed by Governor Akeredolu.
He stated this in his reaction to the Akeredolu’s statement where he noted that Ajayi gets the highest running grant of N13m monthly.
Ajayi in a statement released through his spokesman, Allen Sowore, expressed surprised that the Ondo State Governor could reveal the sum of N13m as what Ajayi gets as if it was a gift.
He said what he receives until the Governor stopped releasing same was 12million naira per month.
The ZLP governorship candidate noted that the fund includes the imprest of Deputy Governor’s office, allowances of staff, fuelling of vehicles, care of his residence and welfare of his aides.
“Huge as the amount may appear, it amounts to not so much when the heads and number of individuals it caters for are considered,” he added.
“The governor gets a security vote of N750million naira every month. He, Akeredolu, also gets an imprest of about N150 million”
The Deputy Governor further alleged that Akeredolu’s wife and son also collect millions of naira as imprest on monthly basis without occupying any constitutionally recognised positions.
