Ajimobi Awarded N30bn Last-minute Contracts In One Day, Says Seyi Makinde
Seyi Makinde, Governor-elect of Oyo State, has accused Abiola Ajimobi, outgoing Governor of the state, of awarding contracts worth N30billion in one day.
Berating the move, he, however, promised to review all contracts awarded in the state.
Read his statement:
“Events of the past two weeks have shown characteristics of targeted contract awards that were compiled in a haste and randomly awarded to empty government purse before the May 29 swearing-in date. “While the government remains in place till May 28, awarding a N30bn new set of contracts in one day as was the case during last Wednesday’s executive meeting was curious and an aberration, especially when debts, as old as 2011 are left unpaid.”
