The Governor-elect of Oyo State, Engr. Seyi Makinde has warned “those who think they can fleece the state government” to have a second thought.
In a statement signed on his behalf by Prince Dotun Oyelade, the Governor-elect said that “the plan of the outgoing administration to concession the Agodi Gardens and some landed property at Trans Amusement Park to a Government insider will not materialise as it does not follow due process”.
Engr Makinde said that he is well aware of the outgoing government’s plan to mismanage the $ 610 million special intervention fund of which Oyo State is a beneficiary.
According to the statement, “the hasty contracts being awarded at SUBEB has also caught the eyes of the public, likewise the many other last-minute hanky panky going on”.
While Engr. Makinde warned contractors not to risk their licenses, he assured members of the pubic that due diligence will be upheld and relevant anti-corruption agencies have been duly informed.
