The Group Managing Director of Chance Oil, Mr. Mike Osatuyi yesterday debunked media reports that the company’s filling station was sealed due to its link with Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose.
Osatuyi stated rather that the closure was done by the Ogun State Government due to approval fees, and not the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) as alleged.
His clarification followed last Thursday’s report by a national daily (not The AUTHORITY) that the EFCC had sealed a filling station purportedly belonging to Fayose for reasons yet unknown.
According to him, Chance Oil has no connection with Governor Fayose therefore, “I will not hesitate to level charges against any media that allow themselves to be used by some disgruntled elements and enemies of business growth.
“I urge Nigerian journalists to investigate rather than involve in gpeddling wrong and unconfirmed information. I don’t have any connection whatsoever with Governor Fayose.
“The station was sealed by the Ogun State Government over non-payment of permit charge. Chance Oil, which is located at Lambe in Akute area of Ogun State, is owned by me, not Fayose.”
