    The Ogun State House of Assembly has again summoned an aide to former governor Ibikunle Amosun, Jide Odusolu, over alleged 25 infractions.

    The Assembly had in October grilled Odusolu who was the immediate-past Managing Director of the Ogun State Property and Investment Corporation,   over alleged sharp practices perpetrated at the corporation.

    The lawmakers had on October 13 engaged Odusolu for about six hours.

    Odusolu was re-invited to appear before the Assembly Committee on Public Accounts and Anti-corruption on Monday (today).

    The Speaker, Olakunle Oluomo, who made the announcement, said Odusolu was re-invited over 25 infractions against him by the audit reports during his tenure of office for further engagements on Monday, November 9, 2020.

    The chairman of the committee, Musefiu Lamidi, said the corporation merged the cost of land and buildings which contravened the provisions of the accounting standard.
