Oyo State governor, Seyi Makinde, has given former public office holders who served under his predecessor, Abiodun Ajimobi, to return all government vehicles and assets in their possession on or before Friday June 7th or risk having security agencies confront them to retrieve them.
A statement issued by the Chief of Staff to the governor, Bisi Ilaka, says the state government described as dishonourable the fact that over a week after the tenure of former political office holders expired, some of them still held on to government properties. The state government vowed to take necessary action if they fail to return the government’s properties within 48 hours.
The statement reads
“His Excellency, Governor Seyi Makinde has directed that all former political functionaries who are still in possession of government vehicles to return the same to government transport pool within 48 hours, failure to which the security agencies shall be directed to retrieve such vehicles from wherever they may be kept.
“We will take all necessary steps to ensure that all assets illegally taken away by the former officials are returned to its custody”.
