AKURE – There are Speculations ongoing about the tenure extension for Ondo State Accountant General (AG), Laolu Akindolie, due for retirement on January 16, 2021, after five years in office.
According to Guardian, “The extension of service of the Accountant General will be a clog in the wheel of progress of this administration. If he is retained beyond January 16, 2021, it will not augur well for the system. We have endured him enough as AG for five years.”
In a statement by the AG, He said “There is nobody that can establish any graft against me. I have not stolen any government money. It is better the person substantiate it because I will go to court. In the next one week, I will be out of this job. So, I will be free to engage my own lawyer and I am doing that.
He further added that “I have already done my handover note. Lobbying is not my style. I didn’t lobby to become Accountant General, let alone extension. My personal belongings are no longer in the office. Civil service is all about retirement. Extension of service is not in my own language.”
