Prince Dapo Abiodun, Governor of Ogun State
The Ogun State governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has received the very disturbing news of the arrest of one of his political appointees, Mr Abidemi Rufai, in New York, United States of America (USA) over alleged unemployment benefits fraud in the United States.
This development was made known in a statement released by Kunle Somorin, the Chief Press Secretary to the governor of Ogun State.
In view of the gravity of these allegations, the Governor has ordered the immediate suspension of the accused appointee. The Governor wishes to restate his commitment to an open, transparent, accountable, and morally upright administration and will not condone any act bordering on criminality by anyone.
