I May Probe Mimiko If Traces Of Corruption Cases Is Found -- Akeredolu

The Ondo State governor elect, Rotimi Akeredolu, has said despite his pronouncement of not wanting to probe the administration of the outgoing Governor, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko, he would not close his eyes if he stumbles upon established cases of wrongdoing.

Akeredolu, however, re-emphasised that he would not deliberately go out to probe Mimiko’s administration.

Speaking with State House correspondents after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Wednesday, Akeredolu said: “At the centre, the government of President Buhari said we must look back in order to move forward.

“He has been there for over a year now.
“Has he instituted a probe?
“Looking back is not a probe and I maintain that I will not probe any administration.
“This is responsible leadership and I am elected to lead the people.
“The task ahead of us is enormous than for us to start instituting probes.
“My own is not to institute any probe against the last administration and that is what President Buhari has done.
“But if we find out that wrongs were committed, we have enough laws of the land to take care of people who have committed wrongs.
“As we start our work, as we go ahead, if there is any semblance of ‘Dasukigate’ in the state, the law will take its course.
“That is different from probing.

“We will follow what Mr. President is doing at the centre.”
