100 Days: South-West PDP Hails Makinde, Wants Ajimobi Probed.

The South-West zonal office of the Peoples Democratic party (PDP) has expressed joy at the giant strides already being recorded within less than 100 days in office of the Governor of Oyo State, Engineer Seyi Makinde.

A statement by the South-West spokesman of the PDP,  Mr. Ayo Fadaka, which was made available on Tuesday, expressed happiness that the people of Oyo State are indeed under a new lease of life during Makinde’s short tenure so far.

According  to the statement “this is becoming evidently so in view of the quality of policies, legislations and managerial acumen of Governor Seyi Makinde,” which it added is manifestly been impressed on the people, thereby indicating that it cannot be business as usual in the Pacesetter state. 
The South west PDP submitted however that it noted  with sadness a statement credited to the immediate past Governor of the State to the effect that the issues of missing Government vehicles is a “minor issue” and that such was not “worthy” of the attention of government.
 
Condemning the statement of the  erstwhile governor, the PDP said it ” note that his attempt to whimsically dismiss fraudulent and sharp practices of this magnitude clearly underscore the levity with which the State’s resources were carelessly frittered under his watch.

 “The Oyo State Government continues to maintain that many of the cars procured in February 2019 by the Ajimobi administration remain missing and such vehicles, in view of their age, cannot be classified and described as unserviceable.

“We, therefore, demand of Senator Abiola Ajimobi, the former Oyo State Governor, to take due cognisance of what posterity will say concerning him and his tenure and immediately impress it on his appointees to return those vehicles to the new government”

The PDP further recall that “the Ajimobi administration awarded a N7billion contract for a upstart contractor who is nowhere to be found after the sum of N2billion was paid to him.

“This is grand larceny and it is sad that this happened in Oyo State.

“In view of the foregoing, Governor Seyi Makinde must do a proper audit of what transpired in the Ajimobi years, as it will help the people of the State to realise how criminal actions were perpetrated under the guise of governance”

Eulogising Makinde further for his achievements in office so far, the PDP lauded the Governor ” for bringing laughter back to the lips of Oyo State workers and especially pensioners through his administration’s payment of 100 per cent of their emoluments as against the inhuman 20 per cent paid under the APC administration of Senator Ajimobi.
“This action demonstrates Makinde’s respect for the people he governs and also an attestation of PDP’s genuine care for the people. The people of the State are certainly in for a dose of compassionate administration. We also ask the people of the South West region to take due cognisance of developments in Oyo and now resolve to ensure that they vote the PDP in the next round of elections across the Zone” the statement concluded.
