Ambode Speaks On N9.9bn Lagos Government Account

Immediate past governor of Lagos State,
Akinwunmi Ambode, has denied a statement
attributed to the Economic and Financial Crimes
Commission (EFCC) alleging that it had frozen
certain accounts linked to him.
The former governor said no account of his
contained N9.9 billion let alone being frozen by
the EFCC.
He said that in the spirit of Sallah and having
served Lagos well with utmost dedication and
integrity, his record is very clear and his mind
joyful for the opportunity to have served the state
diligently.
In a statement on Friday by his media aide, Habib
Aruna, Ambode said while he did not intend to
join issues with the anti-corruption agency at this
time especially as there has been no
communication between him and the commission
on this issue, it is pertinent to clarify what he
believed was a misleading import of the press
statement on Tuesday.
According to the former governor, the accounts in
question that were frozen by the Federal High
Court belong to the Lagos State Government and
not him or any individual.
“Those accounts were opened in the course of
normal operations by the Lagos State Government
for its administrative purposes and not for the
former Governor’s personal transactions as was
being wrongly insinuated and have been operated
to ensure smooth operations of government
activities by previous and present administrations.
The former Governor was not and will never be
involved in any unauthorized use of government
property and resources.
“We strongly believe that after four demanding
years as Chief Executive of Lagos State, Mr.
Ambode is entitled to some deserved rest with his
family and loved ones without the unwarranted
attacks on his well-earned reputation,” the
statement said.
Ambode also extended warm Sallah greetings to
President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President
Yemi Osinbajo, Bola Tinubu, and the entire
leadership of his party.
He also wished Lagosians well in the spirit of the
season.
