Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, has assured that no legitimate claims on contractual agreement with his administration would either be denied or delayed.

Speaking while presenting a cheque of some Millions of Naira to the widow of an Oil & Gas revenue Agent, Engineer Oyedele Oguntibeju who worked with a consortium on tax revenue engaged by the Ondo State Government, but died before the receipt of revenue generated from the assignment and consultancy fees payment, the Governor said his administration would not default in any of its obligations.

 Akeredolu who passionately condoled with the widow of the deceased, Mrs. Mary Oguntibeju and the children, Miss Hannah Oguntibeju and Master Emmanuel Oguntibeju, encouraged them to take heart and invest the money wisely on productive ventures without any frivolities.

He used the occasion to announce an automatic employment to the daughter of the deceased, Miss Hannah Oguntibeju who is a university graduate.

The governor, however, pleaded with the extended families of the deceased to allow the widow and the children live peacefully without any further trauma, so that the shocking demise of their benefactor would ease in no time.

Earlier, the Managing Consultant of Ondo State Global Revenue Consultancy Programme, Mr Akinyele Oladeji, had said that both the engagement of a tax revenue facilitating team comprising a firm of Chartered Accountants, Ayodele Akande & Co and Engineer Oyedele Oguntibeju was based on the desire of the State Governor to empower all competent local professionals through patronage with such jobs.

 In his remarks, the Executive Chairman Ondo State Internal Revenue Service, Mr Tolu Adegbie appreciated the State Governor who approved the payment of the money to the next of kin of Engineer Oguntibeju despite the fact that the deceased did not have a direct contract with the State Government before his demise, but part of a consortium.

He explained that the ODIRS had to ensure that all members of the consortium get their consultant fees. With this action, we have demonstrated again our core values of integrity, accountability and equity to all.

Mr Adegbie said the deceased was mutually engaged to serve as a guide to Oil and Gas companies working in Ondo State which have not been remitting their tax revenues to the coffers of the state government.
