Africa-Press – Nigeria. Ondo State Commissioner for Energy and Mineral Resources, Razaq Obe, raised an alarm on Friday that the signature of his boss, Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, is being forged.
Obe revealed this following the alleged discovery of irregularities in a document that was returned to the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources through the office of the Secretary to the State Government, SSG.
Concerned over the development, Obe wrote a letter to the deputy governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, in which he highlighted the discrepancies in the signature.
The commissioner maintained that, with the severity of the situation, he sought the assistance of forensic experts to authenticate the governor’s signature.
He stressed that, based on the findings, it was confirmed that the signature was indeed forged.
Obe, who called for immediate action to be taken over the situation, described it as a disturbing development.
The letter reads: “I write to bring to your attention a critical matter that requires immediate action. It has been confirmed that the signature of Mr Governor on a certain document has been forged.
“The irregularities in the signature were first observed when a file from my ministry was returned through the office of the Secretary to the State Government (SSG).
“This is the only file that has been returned so far out of the five files that were sent for Mr Governor’s approval about two months ago.”
