Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State in Southwest Nigeria has dismissed allegations that some commissioners and state officials are forging his signature.
Gatekeepers News reports that Governor Akeredolu responded to allegations made by Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) Kayode Ajulo, who claimed that some government officials were forging the Governor’s signature on official documents.
Ajulo alleged that the vacuum created by Akeredolu due to illness allowed cabals to forge his signature to legitimize their actions.
Responding to Ajulo’s remark, Akeredolu, through his Chief Press Secretary, Richard Olatunde, described the allegation as “utterly preposterous and ludicrous,” while challenging him to present concrete evidence.
In his statement, he alleged that Ajulo was depending on “falsified signatures” that were being circulated on social media.
He challenged Ajulo to provide the alleged forged documents or disclose the beneficiary.
The statement partly reads: “We are more than willing to investigate the matter and prosecute anyone found culpable.
“But we cannot entertain baseless speculations and unfounded claims.
“The individuals behind these fabricated signatures are the real culprits engaging in criminal activities.
“The truth of the matter is only Governor Akeredolu can claim that his signature has been forged.”
