“Lots usually are not proper with this authorities. This authorities says he has established an anti-graft company. Until now, his EFCC is until inactive. The anti-graft couldn’t even catch those that have been transferring out the state’s water pipes for private gross sales. No investigation on the reported incident until the second. Our governor simply moved on; he didn’t even utter a phrase and this means that scandals greater than we see are happening below this authorities.
“The announcement of the Engineer Seyi Makinde administration final week to spend a complete of N12b on buy of 106 Mass Transit Buses and rehabilitation of simply two spots of roads within the Ibadan metropolis requires concern and questioning.
“First, how can the federal government of Engr Makinde purchase 106 buses with N9.3b? What kind of buses are they shopping for with such an enormous quantity which might be channeled elsewhere for one thing productive? What kind of buses is our governor shopping for at that price when Lagos State was reported to have bought the 80 BRT buses burnt down throughout the #EndSARS mayhem on the whole price of N3.9b.
“If Oyo State is shopping for the identical model of buses of Lagos State, it implies that when Lagos purchased a unit on the price of N48.7m, our prudent governor can be shopping for our personal at N87.7m. Once more, why should the buses be bought by means of a third-party firm, even when our governor should purchase them?
“Second, how on earth will our governor plan to spend nearly N3b for rehabilitation of Felele-Idi-Odo junction and Akobo Common Fuel highway? Of what critical strategic financial significance is the Felele-Idi-Odo junction to the overall financial nicely being of the individuals of Oyo State?
“It’s now obvious possibly sure caliber of persons are simply in energy to broaden and strengthen their private estates on the detriment of the poor struggling plenty. Our current governor within the state appears to belong to this class of “leaders”.
“It’s unhappy that the present members within the state’s Home of Meeting lack the shrewdness, guts, publicity, expertise and sagacity to place the governor on his toes to be accountable. It seems this present meeting is all out to fill their pockets and have change into a rubber stamp meeting. So, individuals of Oyo State have to get up and cease this gullible praise-singing”.
