…Oyo APC is a Shameless Party, We are not Like Them, Makindes Aids Replies
Following the approval of the Oyo State House of Assembly for the governor of Oyo State, Engr. Seyi Makinde to obtained N10billion naira infrastructural loan, the Oyo State chapter of the All Progressive Congress (APC) has decribed the loan as a looting in anticipation.
The Publicity Secretary of APC in the Oyo State, Dr. Abdulazeez Olatunde during a telephone interview made the disclosure on Tuesday, saying that people of the state had entered a one chance vehicles.
Recalled that the Oyo State House of Assembly had on Tuesday approved the request of the executive to obtain 10 billion naira loan to improve infrastructures in the State.
The infrastructural loan which was approved by the state lawmakers during their plenary will be obtained from First Bank plc, United Bank Africa and Unity Bank plc, respectively.
According to Olatunde ‘the requested loan is an anticipating looting, and that is exactly what is playing out now for the state house of assembly to have approved it, Makinde has accused his predecessor ‘Ajimobi’, that he spent 8years in office, and having a loan of N150billion naira as a debt after leaving as the governor of Oyo State, which we did not agreed, but now, in less than his two months of governor Makinde in office as the governor of the state, he has requested for 10billion naira loan.
“Imagine how many billions he would still borrowed as a loan before the expiration of his 4years tenure in office as the governo.”
“We raised objection when the governor declared his N48billion naira asset, but the PDP said we are crying fouls, so we told the world that we are still waiting for the Code of Conduct Bureu to confirm the asset.”
In a switch response, Mr Taiwo Adisa, the Chief Press Secetary to the Oyo State governor, said that APC in Oyo state is a party of shameless people who are busy running their mouth after they stand accused of mindless looting and unconscienced governance.
According to Adisa “We are not like the APC where the debt profile of Oyo State has doubled during their eight years in government, so what’s left for them to say other than shouting?.
Adisa noted that if truly Oyo APC are serious with their accountability and probity, why can’t the chairman or their spokesman impress on officials who served in the eight year misrule they foisted on Oyo people between 2011 and 2019 to publicly declare their assets like Governor Makinde did, because there is no law that stops them from doing so.
“Let APC first brace itself up to the level of accountability being exhibited by Governor Makinde before we can engage them in discussions on this matter, if Oyo state Governmenr said it needs N10bn for infrastructure, it us an evidence of the run down infrastructure we met on ground on May 29, 2019.
He however said that the people will see the results in this open administration of Governor Seyi Makinde, adding that It wont be like the past administration that awarded N7bn contract to a faceless organisation which immediately bolted after taking N2bn of money belonging to the People of Oyo state.
