Governor Oyetola on Saturday has debunked a report linking him to the purchase of a property in London.

In a publication, it was alleged that Oyetola bought a mansion worth 11.95million  Euros in London from a company belonging to one Kola Aluko, a Nigerian Businessman who is currently on trial for money laundering.

The Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Ismail Omipidan, said in a statement that governor Oyetola resigned from the com.

through phone calls, visits, text messages over the development, assuring them that there was nothing to worry about any , Aranda overseas corporation’’. That was allegedly mentioned to buy the said property in 2011.

Oyetola’s resignation from the company, he added, was consequent upon his appointment as Chief of Staff to immediate past Governor Rauf Aregbesola. Omipidan stated that Oyetola had no relationship whatsoever with Aluko, the alleged owner of the said property, let alone have any business transaction with him.

He noted that the governor did not break any law as he equally resigned his directorship of Global Investments Offshore ltd. , upon his appointment in2011.

Omipidan added that Governor Oyetola thanked family, friends, and associates, who had shown concern through phone calls, visits, text messages over the development, assuring them that there was nothing to worry about.

The statement partly reads: ‘’We have seen reports in some online media platforms concerning the PANDORA PAPERS ‘ allegations’’. ‘’This  is, therefore, to set the record straight .’’Mr. Adegboyega Oyetola, governor of Osun State resigned his directorship of Aranda overseas corporation in2011 when he took up the political appointment. He also surrendered his shareholding of the same company.

‘’Since 2011, till date, he has had no association, dealings, and business transactions with the said company as he is neither a  director nor a shareholder of the said company.

‘’He, therefore, could not have acquired the said property in2017 either directly or through the said company as being alleged.

‘’As a matter of fact, Oyetola has no relationship or link with the alleged owner of the property, Mr. Kolawole Aluko, let alone go into a business dealing or transaction with him’’.

‘’He also complied fully with the law of the land by exiting Global Investments offshore Ltd. As Director in 2011, upon his appointment as Chief of Staff to the immediate past governor of Osun State  Rauf Aregbesola.

‘’While we appreciate family members, friends, associates, and well-wishers for their show of concern overdevelopment, we assure them that there is nothing to worry about.

‘’Mr Oyetola has always shown that he is a man who knows and respects the law in his corporate and political endeavours’’.
