Oyinlola said he would respond to Akande in his autobiography, which is in the works.
He said: “On the Osun State Governor’s Office (Bola Ige House contract), Chief Akande said I wrongly accused him of corruption in the construction of the Governor’s Office.
“I did not level any false charges against him.
“I came into office in May 2003 and discovered that the Governor’s Office complex which Akande commissioned for use after he lost the election was not completed.
“The state government asked the contractor to come back to the site and complete the works, more so when evidence in government accounts showed that he had been paid.
“But the project consultant shocked everyone with his claim that part of the payment was taken back to finance the 2003 re-election bid of Chief Akande.
“The consultant said the contractor could not go back to work unless he was paid his full dues. One of Akande’s appointees confessed collecting money from this contractor for Akande’s re-election.
“I consulted Chief Akande on this. He denied having any deal with the contractor and the consultant.
“Some people were subsequently taken to court on a seven-count criminal charge. Stakeholders in the state and Alhaji Arisekola Alao later intervened.
“I have the details of who collected how much in my forthcoming book.”
