Makinde knocks Ajimobi over re-awarded Silo Project
•Threatens To Deal With Erring Accounting Officers:
With less than 2 weeks to the exit of the current administration in Oyo State, the governor-elect, Engr Seyi Makinde, has once again complained of reckless issuance of dubious contracts and other less than noble activities by the out going government.
The statement cited as one of the examples the case of the silos equipment at Awe in AFIJIO local government, where a contract of N267m was re-awarded to an unnamed contractor for double the price only last week.
In a release issued by his spokesman, Prince Dotun Oyelade, accounting officers of MDAs, permanent secretaries and the office of the accountant general that are being used as conduit pipes to perfect the dubious acts will have to explain their roles in the very near future.
The governor-elect said that with the frenzy of malfeasance going on, all contracts awarded since March 11, 2019, and all fresh appointments within the same period will come under special focus and according to the statement, all options are on the table as none of these actions are cast in stone or binding on the new administration.
“Any attempt by the outgoing government to stifle, frustrate or stop the in coming government from performing will be resisted by all legitimate means,” the statement added.
