Defeated APC Governor Begins Massive Looting, Set To Empty State Coffers, Ahead Of May 29, Handover
The Oyo State Governor-elect, Seyi Makinde, of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has raised an alarm, that the defeated All Progressives Congress, APC, State Government, has been moving millions of naira from the State coffers, in the last 72-hours.
The allegation was contained in a statement, on Tuesday night, by Makinde’s Spokesman, Dotun Oyelade.
He claimed that credible sources within government, said that contracts are being used to take millions from the government coffers, with the connivance of a few Civil Servants.
Makinde stated that while he did not want a time-wasting probe, as he had promised during his campaign, he would set a dateline upon all contracts awarded, and payments made under suspicious circumstances by the current administration.
The statement reads: “The Governor-elect 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.
“According to Makinde, cases of unscheduled recruitment and appointments, including back-dated ones, have also been brought before him.
“Government will not hesitate to reverse any such move with consequences, on those found to have committed infractions of the civil service guidelines.”
