Ogunmola noted that the apex bank deliberately refused to release the fund to the state when it was under the PDP.
He stated that all manners of pressure and lobby was mounted to secure the release but the bank was set not to release the money to former Gov Idris Wada as a sure way of ensuring he loses the governorship election.
