Barr. Segun Odubela, Commr for EducationOgun State Commissioner for Education, Gbenga Odubela is at the centre of controversy over missing funds running into about N350 Million.
The money was reportedly earmarked for payment of the West African Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) fees of students of the state.
Informants revealed that the Ministry couldn’t pay the fee as at when due and Odubela couldn’t offer satisfactory explanation on the matter.
Insiders revealed that Governor Amosun got wind of the development- and his probe revealed ‘inconsistent explanations that
couldn’t clarify how the fund got missing’.
Sources said that the Commissioner hinged the disappearance on ‘utilising it for other uses.’
Information had it that Governor Amosun is keeping the development as top secret to safeguard the image of the cabinet and his government’s reputation.
Sources told us last week that Odubela is one of his hard core loyalists- and the politics of Ogun State is so fragile that such a development may transform into a whirlwind, which the opponents will use against the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).
