Abeokuta- Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun has dismissed allegations that the Truth Commission inaugurated by his administration is meant to witch-hunt members of the opposition.

The statement said government was not interested in witch-hunting any opposition member particularly the immediate past governor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel.
It explained that the focus was rather on projects that would move the state forward and improve the living standard of the people.
The statement noted that members of the commission were respectable people with proven track records, reiterating that “anyone with clean hands should be free to appear before the commission”.
It gave the assurance that government would implement the recommendations of the commission, and urged the public to support it to enable it succeed in the task ahead.
The governor inaugurated the commission earlier this month to investigate the killings that occurred during the tenure of Daniel’s administration.
Daniel has alread promised to appear before the commission if invited, saying that it would be an opportunity for him to clear the air on some allegations against his administration.
