The Oyo State Government hereby wishes to react to the unfounded and mischievous allegation of emptying the treasury by the spokesperson of Engr. Seyi Makinde.
Ordinarily, Government should ignore the antics of the spokesperson of the Governor Elect in the state since the path of calumny is one in which he treads with absolute familiarity.
The Oyo State Government therefore for the umpteenth time wishes to implore members of the public to ignore the inflammatory statements of the serial propangadist. We refuse to trade words with him any further.
For the avoidance of doubt however, we hereby state unequivocally that the accusations are not only patently false but are figments of his imagination The State Government’s earlier statement on a related matter on the siphoning of funds subsists. Meanwhile, let it be reiterated that the mandate of the Ajimobi administration will not lapse until the 28th of May 2019. Therefore no amount of sabre-rattling will cause the Government to fold its hands counting days instead of making the remainder of its days count.
While making this know to the general public, Engr Seyi Makinde spokesman, Prince Dotun Oyelade, in a statement released alleged the state government of embarking on a needless and questionable special projects, and which according to him, N2.745m have been released for each of the 33 local governments of the state.
Engr Seyi Makinde, though his spokesman, also alleged that, the Oyo State Road Maintenance Agency, OYTROMA, have been awarded undue contract from the government treasury, then making over N4B to have been carted away from the government purse.
He further explained that, the excess crude oil account of the state have been emptied through the Ministry of Local Government and Cheiftaincy Affairs.
The governor elect also raises alarm that, Sen. Isiaq Abiola Ajimobi government is planning to recruit massively before handing over to him by May and that was aiming to create unnecessary financial burden for him while assuming office.
