The Ondo State House of Assembly has said it won’t investigate the allegation that the signature of ailing Governor Rotimi Akeredolu is being forged by some state actors.

There have been allegations from different quarters that the signature of the governor was forged on some official documents of the state.

The allegation was first raised by a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Kayode Ajulo, who said last week that, “I have it on good authority as a lawyer. Some of the commissioners, about five of them, sent memos to the governor, and they all returned with approval.

“Going through the approval compared to what the governor had approved when he was hale and hearty, there are notable disparities in them. The purported signature is not from the governor. It is so apparent.”

Also, the state Commissioner for Energy and Mineral Resources, Mr Razak Obe, last week wrote to the Deputy Government, Lukcky Aiyedatiwa, claiming that Akeredolu’s signature was forged on some documents.

“Under close inspection, I noticed significant differences between the suspicious signature and the handwriting and Mr. Governor’s known signature and handwriting in the file.

“Concerned about the gravity of the situation, I decided to seek a forensic review before disclosing my discovery. I sent the suspicious signature and handwriting samples and copies of the old regular signatures to forensic experts, who have now confirmed that the suspicious signature and handwriting were indeed forged,” the commissioner said.
