‘I Sought No Bribe Nor Personal Benefit From Dangote Before He Opted Out Of Olokola FTZ For His Refinery’ – Mimiko

I did not seek any bribe from Dangote’, former governor of Ondo State, Olusegun Mimiko states.


Former governor of Ondo state, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko has denied ever seeking for a bribe from Africa’s biggest billionaire, Alhaji Aliko Dangote to enable him set up his private Refinery at Olokola FTZ (free trade zone).

The Kano born billionaire eventually moved his Refinery project to Lekki and was commissioned by Nigeria’s president, Muhammadu Buhari earlier in the week.


Dangote points to the future where Africa will prosper, while former president of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan listens. (2013 photo).

Olusegun Mimiko has debunked what he has called “oft repeated falsehood” in a press statement released by John Paul Akinduro, his Special Assistant on Media and Digital Communications which was received by The Oasis Reporters.

Reproduced here is his statement:

Reports of the oft repeated falsehood about Aliko Dangote opting out of the Olokola FTZ for his refinery project, owing to an alleged demand for personal benefit by Dr Olusegun Mimiko has been brought to our notice.

We state that this lie is totally reprehensible. That otherwise informed people are repeating the utter falsehood is sad.

We state for the umpteenth time that Mimiko did not make any personal demand, cash or kind, or receive any personal gratification that led to the location of the factory in Lekki instead of Olokola.

Again, this allegation is a blatant lie and we hope that Alhaji Aliko Dangote will, one day, volunteer facts on why he chose Lekki over Olokola.
