Ajimobi govt planning to cripple my administration – Oyo governor-elect, Seyi Makinde cries out

The Governor-elect in Oyo State, Engineer Seyi Makinde, has alleged that there were plans by the outgoing government in the state to cripple his administration by ensuring that all monies in government coffers, both strategic and from stabilisation accounts are spent in the next couple of weeks.

Mankinde alleged that the move was to stall the smooth takeoff of his administration.

Makinde in a statement signed by his spokesman, Prince Dotun Oyelade and made available to DAILY POST on Monday said that “he is aware of questionable special projects for which N2, 475m have been hurriedly released for each of the 33 local governments and similar amount released to the Oyo State Road Maintenance Agency (OSTROMA) for the same purpose totalling four billion, nine hundred and fifty million naira”.

He added that, “the money was taken from the Excess Crude oil Account and released through the Ministry of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs.

“While government is a continuum, frenetic release of government funds in unusual circumstances is worrisome especially if it is not in the normal bureaucratic pattern”.

Makinde said his administration has a plan in place for phased recruitment when it gets into office, “but will reject the mischievous planned mass recruitment by the outgoing government to increase the financial load of the incoming administration and stunt it’s smooth take off”.
