The head of the Alliance for Democracy (AD) in Oyo State, engineer Oyedele Hakeem Alao, described the demolition of the Oyo State House in Abuja as unnecessary and another attempt by Governor Seyi Makinde to squander state resources.
DAILY POST recalls that Makinde last month ordered the demolition of the Oyo State House located in the Asokoro area of Abuja.
The governor’s press secretary, Mr. Taiwo Adisa, when contacted, told DAILY POST that the building needed to be remodeled.
However, Alao described the demolition of the building as unnecessary and a waste of state resources.
Alao, who fought against the gubernatorial elections on the AD platform in 2019, challenged Mackinde to explain the reasons for the demolition of the State House in Abuja and the renovation of the governor’s office.
The head of AD in a statement made available to DAILY POST on Wednesday through his media aide, Omotayo Iyanda, claimed that Makinde was “following a selfish unreasonable agenda”.
He also challenged Mackinde to explain the impact of the two projects on the economy and people in the state.
Alao said the reasons given by the state government for the demolition of the liaison office in Abuja were not viable, because he asked Mackinde to explain why he also started rebuilding the governor’s office.
He challenged Mackinde to release the amount of money that will be spent on two projects and a source of money.
He said, “It is confusing that the governor could suddenly demolish the Oyo State Liaison Office in Abuja, and he also demolished some departments of the Governor’s office, namely security post office, reception and press crew office, given the high taste and psychedelics. the nature of the late Senator Ayimobi, for the parts lost by Governor Makinda is not desirable.
If they are not planned in the budget at all, then our governor, as the “transparent” leader he has always claimed he should, should explain where he will get the funds to carry out the projects or finance them from his personal purse as “Philanthropist
In short, Governor Makinda would be good to answer these questions: are these “projects” so important to the generality of the people of Oyo State? What are the direct benefits of “projects” for the citizens of the state?
What impact will “projects” have on the country’s economy? Are these the types of “projects” that a serious government should pursue when people are seriously struggling for food and survival?
“Again, Your Excellency, sir, for all these questions please answer!”
