Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo state took a swipe at Makinde over his lamentation against economic hardship occasioned by the removal of fuel subsidy.

In a statement made available to Legit.ng, Oyo APC described the governor's action as shameful and hypocritical.

The party chapter regretted that "Makinde has grown more wings on his penchant for misleading the public and sacrificing others for his ineptitude in government. Funny enough, the PDP-dominated State House of Assembly spoke in the same tone on same day and we understand the script being played by the governor."
