Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state has vowed to retrieve all the money allegedly looted during the administration of late Ajimobi.
He disclosed this at an event to kickstart the construction of the 21km Ajia-Airport-New Ife expressway road, in Ajia town.
According to the governor, the retrieved funds would be used to develop the state’s infrastructure.
Going further, the governor also made the announcement of N100bn bond issuance by the state.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Makinde was praised for observing all safety protocols at the arrival hall of Port Harcourt International Airport.
The governor was praised by the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria on Wednesday, July 15, in a tweet sighted by Legit.ng.
This comes hours after the organisation lambasted former governor of Zamfara state, Abdulaziz Yari, for violating COVID-19 rules.
Legit.ng had also reported that former governor of Oyo , Adebayo Alao-Akala, has revealed how his former boss, ex-governor Rashidi Ladoja, was impeached in 2005.
Alao-Akala explained that many people were oblivious of what transpired before Ladoja's impeachment.
Legit.ng gathered that those who executed the plan to remove his former boss would have sacked him if not for the constitutional barrier.
He said: "People did not know what was happening that time. I tried to explain in my memoir, which by the grace of God, will soon come out. Those who executed that plan to remove my boss, if they were to have their way and if not for the constitutional barrier, I was not supposed to be their candidate as governor, but there was no way they could jump that constitution, and there was no way they could impeach both of us at the same time because I was not doing anything.
"I was hiding as a deputy governor. If they had their way, they would want another person to be governor. I did not play any role in the impeachment."
