Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State has been exposed by Seyi Makinde, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship aspirant… “I query Governor Abiola Ajimobi’s legacy over the suffering of hapless citizens of Oyo State.”
“The legacy bequeathed the people as deliberately designed to frustrate the vulnerable ones in the society and punish the poor. Any candidate who believes he can ride on the back of Governor Ajimobi’s achievements lacks the compassion and capacity to make a difference in the lives of the common man.”
“I also query the state’s N157 billion debt profile of the government. It will take the next 18 years for a succeeding government to pay up the N157bn debt which this government has incurred in seven years”.
“Oyo state ranks 30 among the 36 states in Nigeria and cannot sustain itself because it has a monthly N10b expenditure and a monthly revenue of N6billion, leaving a deficit level of N4bn.”
“The implication of this figure is that the state sinks into further debt every month to fulfil its recurrent responsibilities in spite of increase in statutory allocations of 34bn from oil revenues and VAT of 1.3bn.”
“Even if Governor Ajimobi turns a new leaf today and pays up all the outstanding debts owed the poor workers and pensioners, the damage has already been done. I have done my homework and with transparency and accountability which are currently lacking and management of overheads, the situation can be reversed within just two years.”
“I am in the best position to turn around the fortunes of Oyo state because of my unblemished record as a successful businessman. What’s more, I have no Godfather to mislead me to work against the interest of the masses”.
