Former governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode, has made it clear that his record as governor is clean and that the N9.9 billion frozen by the Federal High Court is not his own.
Ex Governor Ambode, in a statement by his media aide, Habib Aruna, explained that the accounts frozen by the Federal High Court belong to the Lagos State Government.
“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.”
