Sunday who claimed to hurzle for money yesterday to share among his  colleagues to feed said that people who were calling to threaten them earlier are no longer threatening them.

Ondo State Government is currently owing the players, officials and staff of Ondo State Sports Agency, salaries ranges from 7 to 13 months.

In his reaction, Prof. Wale Adekoya a sportscaster  has described the declaration of the Governor as ‘Executive Rascality’. “If the Accountant General of the State is truly missing, the Governor should send the Police after him.”

According to Prof. it is not the Accountant General that pays salary but the Finance Commissioner.

Another Sports Journalist, Soji Dosumu who’s also a politician said that the Accountant General decided to go on AWOL because he’s no longer answerable to Mimiko led administration which will expire in about 48 hours from now.
