Ondo State Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has vowed to fish out corrupt civil servants who pocket the state fund either directly or indirectly.
He made the assertion on Tuesday while signing into law, the 2017 Appropriation Bill at the Cocoa Conference Hall of the Governor’s office in Akure, the state capital.
Akeredolu was so emphatic over the rate at which some people in the civil service have been diverting government money into their personal pockets under the guise of collecting revenue for the government.
He, therefore, said, those set of people would soon meet their waterloo as government would not fold her arms, saying appropriate measures have been put in place to fish out the evil doers.
The budget, initially put at N169 billion, was later jacked up to N170billion.
The breakdown is as follows: Debt service takes: N8.3b
Statutory Transfer: N8.3b
Capital Expenditure: N59.1b
Recurrent Expenditure: N95.1b.
He later said the issue of unemployment would be tackled and that priority would be given to rural development, education and agriculture.
