- The south-west wing of Peoples Democratic Party has urged Governor Seyi Makinde to probe his predecessor, Abiola Ajimobi
- Makinde and Ajimobi have been at loggerhead over missing government vehicles and debt claim made against the former Oyo governor
- PDP also lauded the giant strides already being recorded less than 100 days in office of Governor Makinde
The southwest chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state to conduct a proper audit of what transpired during the tenure of the immediate past governor of the state, Senator Abiola Ajimobi.
The party said that the audit exercise would help the new government to ascertain all the initiatives carried out under the last administration, NAN reports.
The group ‘s position was contained in a statement issued on Tuesday, August 13, in Ibadan by Ayo Fadaka, the south-west PDP publicity secretary.
The party was reacting to a statement allegedly credited to the former governor that the issue of missing government vehicles was a “minor issue. ”
The statement said: ''The Oyo state government continues to maintain that many of the cars procured in February 2019 by the Ajimobi administration remain missing and such vehicles, in view of their age, cannot be classified and described as unserviceable.
''We, therefore, demand of Senator Abiola Ajimobi, to take due cognisance of what posterity will say concerning him and his tenure and to immediately impress it on his appointees to return those vehicles.''
The party, which called for proper investigation of the administration’s initiatives, lauded the giant strides already being recorded less than 100 days in office of Makinde.
It stated that the people of Oyo state were indeed under a new lease of life during Makinde’s short tenure so far.
The statement further added: ''We congratulate Governor Makinde for bringing laughter back to the lips of the state workers, especially pensioners, through his administration’s payment of 100 per cent of their emoluments, which demonstrates his respect for the people he governs.”
Legit.ng earlier reported that Governor Seyi Makinde has claimed that his administration inherited a minimum debt of N150 billion, adding that his administration was still checking the books to determine the actual total debt.
Governor Makinde made the claim in a media chat on the state television on the occasion of his one month in office.
