Oyo State Governor-elect, Engineer Seyi Makinde has cried out to Nigerians that Governor Abiola Ajimobi is moving millions of naira from government coffers at an alarming rate since the result of the gubernatorial election held on Saturday, March 9th, 2019.
In a statement by his Media Aide, Prince Dotun Oyelade, he said;
“Credible sources within government have revealed that non visible contracts especially, are being used as guises to cart away millions from government with the connivance of a few civil servants.”
“While I do not want a time-wasting holistic probe as I have promised during my campaign, I will set a date line upon all contracts awarded and payments made under suspicious circumstances in the dying days of the current administration.”
“However, I may be forced to open the books if the aim is to rush money out through foul means before May 29 and leave the state in further financial crisis. Cases of unscheduled recruitment and appointments including back-dated once have also been brought before me.”
“Government will be fair but reverse any such move without hesitation but with consequences on those found to have committed infractions of the civil service guidelines.”
“While it was true that out-going Governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi wrote to banks in 2011 to stop honouring cheques from Akala’s out-going administration, I will not tow that course but I warn the government not to exhaust his patience on an issue that bothers on the livelihood of the people of Oyo State.”
