The Ondo State House of Assembly on Tuesday exonerated Mr Gbenga Edema, the Chairman of Ondo State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission (OSOPADEC) from financial misappropriation.

It would be recalled that an individual had petitioned the Assembly to investigate financial activities in relation to developmental projects executed by the commission from 2019 till date and an adhoc committee headed by Hon. Samuel Aderoboye, was set up to investigate the allegation.

Mr Bamidele Oloyelogun, the Speaker of the Assembly, noted that the committee had done a thorough job and submitted its report which cleared the chairman.

” I appreciate the committee for doing an unbiased job and commend the work of the OSOPADEC Chairman, Hon. Gbenga Edema.

“He is , therefore, exonerated from any alleged financial misappropriation according to the report of the committee,” Oloyelogun said.
