STATEMENT BY AMINU A. LOGUN mni, Chief of Staff to the Executive Governor of Kwara State.

Date: 2019-12-05

I am constrained to react to the publication in the Daily Trust Newspaper edition of November 30, 2019 titled "WHY EFCC INVITED KWARA CHIEF OF STAFF, OTHERS - SOURCES."

The publication contained an allegation that Prof Muritala Awodun, erstwhile Executive Chairman, KW-IRS, had given me some money to help influence the extension of his tenure at KW-IRS. This allegation and variants thereof had also featured in social media publications in the past few days.

First and foremost, I will like to state that I truly visited the Ilorin Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) as part of an ongoing investigation into the activities of some past officials, including the former chairman of the Kwara State Internal Revenue Service (KW-IRS). Save for public officials with immunity under our law, every public official has an obligation to the state to assist in the investigation of any crime. I am no exception, hence my first and only appearance on November 26, 2019 to answer the EFCC summon to volunteer information as I know it

However, my visit to the EFCC has been given several misleading interpretations, especially on the social media where some persons are unfairly using that to smear my hard-earned image. I understand this is one of the burdens of being in public office

I state unequivocally that at no time did Prof Awodun give me any money for the claimed purpose or for any other purpose whatsoever. Similarly, I was not involved in any funnelling or distribution of money from KW-IRS and/or any other source for any political campaign or political party. All the stories and theories in the media concerning those allegations are baseless and totally untrue.

I have instructed my lawyers to review the false publications with a view to taking legal actions as may be appropriate.

I remain humbled by and grateful to the Executive Governor of Kwara State, Mallam Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, for the trust reposed in me as the Chairman, Kwara State Transition Committee 2019, which was further concretised by my appointment as the Chief of Staff to the Executive Governor.

I remain very proud of the giant steps and achievements of the Executive Governor since he assumed the reins in Kwara State and shall continue to dutifully support His Excellency in advancing the Kwara Project for the betterment of the good people of Kwara State. I am also of one mind with His Excellency that the task at hand is much too important for us to succumb to sponsored fabrications that are patently designed to distract and cause disaffection.

Aminu A Logun, mni
