N9.9 Billion: Ambode Breaks Silence, Sets The Record Straight

Date:

The immediate past Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode, has denied involvement in the N9.9 billion fraud said to have been discovered by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.


Ambode said none of his accounts contained N9.9 billion let alone being frozen by the EFCC. He said in the spirit of Sallah and having served Lagos State well, his record is clear.


In a statement on Friday by his Media Aide, Habib Aruna, Ambode disclosed that he did not intend to join issues with the anti-corruption agency as there has not been any communication between him and the Commission on the issue.
He added that he, however, wanted to clear his name.


According to the former Governor, the accounts 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.
