We’re Proud Of Makinde’s Giant Strides – South West PDP








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 Engr. Seyi Makinde, the Oyo State governor.
A statement by Mr. Ayo Fadaka, the South West spokesman of the PDP, 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.
“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 being impressed on the people, thereby indicating that it cannot be business as usual in the pacesetter state.
The statement read, “We note 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.
“We equally 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 remained 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 cognizance 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.
“We also recall that the Ajimobi administration awarded a N7 billion contract for an upstart contractor who is nowhere to be found after the sum of N2 billion 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 would help the people of the state to realise how criminal actions were perpetrated under the guise of governance.”
The PDP then congratulated Governor Makinde 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.
It said the 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 cognizance of developments in Oyo and now resolve to ensure that they vote the PDP in the next round of elections across the zone.
