The Ogun State House of Assembly has grilled one of the aides of former Governor Ibikunle Amosun over alleged sharp practices perpetrated at the Ogun Property and Investment Corporation .
The House Committee on Public Accounts and Anti – Corruption had invited the aide , Babajide Odusolu , who was a former Special Adviser and Managing Director of OPIC between 2015 and 2019 for questioning over allegations of financial infractions .
The Committee Chairman , Musefiu Lamidi, confronted Odusolu with the allegation that some projects carried out by the corporation were without budgetary provisions.
Lamidi also alleged that funds expended on MITROS residences in Abeokuta , built by the Amosun administration , were not appropriated for in line with best budgeting practices .
In his defence , Odusolu said OPIC started from the stage where it hardly made profit in 2013 when he took over , till it broke even as a profit – oriented corporation in 2019 .
The former OPIC boss , who was accompanied by some management staff of the corporation , reeled out the various housing projects carried out by the corporation under his purview .
While admitting that the corporation spent some funds not budgeted for , he however, explained that the expenditures were approved by the authorities to carry out projects and investments .
