Ogun pays N1.5b severance allowances to ex-political appointees

Governor Ibikunle Amosun

Ogun State Governor Ibikunle Amosun has distributed cheques totalling N1.5 billion to 663 former

political office holders as payment for their severance allowances.

They are those who served under the administration of immediate past governor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, between 2007-2011 and during Amosun’s first tenure, 2011-2015.

Any political appointee must have served for three years before qualifying for such privilege.The beneficiaries, however, excluded political appointees who served at the local council level under the immediate past administration and they were at the event to register their anger, questioning why the governor has “marginalised” them.
