Ogun State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Akingbolahan Adeniran, has resigned from his position.
Reports reaching Naija News today revealed that Adeniran had tendered his resignation letter since November 8 and that the Governor Dapo Abiodun-led government has remained silenced since the letter was delivered.
Reports going about alleged that the Attorney General resigned his appointment due to alleged massive corruption under the incumbent administration in Ogun State.
When contacted on Monday evening, the Ogun Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Waheed Odusile, denied the resignation of the Attorney General.
Odusile told journalists that the report was not true.
However, after failing to respond to calls and messages pushed through to him at a particular time, Adeniran later reached out to confirm that he truly has resigned from his appointment.
The Attorney General though did not mention any reason for his decision, he said it was not as a result of “massive corruption” in the government.
“It is true that on 8 November 2021, I formally notified His Excellency, Prince Dapo Abiodun, MFR, the Governor of the State, of my decision to resign from the cabinet,” the Attorney General noted in a statement issued through Gov Abiodun’s Senior Special Assistant on New Media, Emmanuel Ojo.
“I must state that my reasons for resigning are purely personal. I am not aware of any “massive corruption” in the Administration and I am indeed very proud of what we have been able to achieve in the administration of justice over the past two years,” Adeniran added.
He mentioned that he had thoroughly enjoyed working with those he called an amazing group of administrators, technocrats and experts in various fields of endeavour under the Abiodun led-government.
Adeniran again assured Governor Abiodun and other members of the cabinet of his continued support even while away.
“I have learnt a lot from you all and pray that God will continue to use you to improve the lives of the good people of Ogun State,” he prayed.
