The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has questioned some officials of Oyo State House of Assembly.

Saga Gist gathered that EFCC summoned the officials over money spent on purchase of vehicles.

The development was sequel to a petition sent to EFCC.

The petitioner alleged that some vehicles bought for members of the House were refurbished vehicles.

The petitioner alleged that the purchased vehicles were allegedly refurbished and sold as new vehicles to members of the assembly.

This then necessitated the invitation of the officials by EFCC.

Saga Gist gathered at the weekend that officials of the Assembly were drilled by EFCC on Thursday over the alleged N1.03 billion purchase of refurbished vehicles.

It was gathered that they were drilled at the Ibadan Zonal office of EFCC between 8 am and 7.am.

All efforts made to get a reaction from the Assembly since last weekend were futile.

The Speaker of the State Assembly, Adebo Ogundoyin has, however, reacted to the invitation.

Ogundoyin in a statement on Monday insisted that the Assembly has nothing to hide vis-a-vis the petition forwarded to EFCC by a former Prosecutor with the Special Presidential Panel on Recovery of Public Property, Tosin Ojaomo over the N1bn vehicle contract awarded by the House.

He added that EFCC was doing its job.

He added that the house was cooperating with the agency.

He maintained that he was ready to honour the EFCC invitation if invited.

Ogundoyin said it was not out of place for EFCC to question the leadership of the House.

“It was true that the EFCC invited the Clerk but her Deputy stood in for her, the Director of Administration and Supplies and the Director of Finance and Accounts last Thursday and they responded accordingly.

“To me, this is in continuation of their investigation on the petition. We are fully cooperating with the Anti-graft Agency and we will never hinder, disturb nor undermine the work of the commission.

“The 9th Oyo Assembly passed the Anti-graft Agency Bill and this led to the Agency being domiciled in the State.

“I am ready to visit the EFCC if invited. As the Speaker, I will surely answer any question relating to the Contract. We followed due process in the purchase of the Vehicles in line with the laid down procedures.”
