I will go after those who went away with Oyo money – Makinde threatens contactor
Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State on Friday vowed to go after those who stole part of the money belonging to the State.
He threatened that his administration will recover every Kobo of Oyo State’s money in the hands of contractors who failed to deliver on projects.
Makinde, speaking during an inspection tour of the newly renovated Jericho Nursing Home, Jericho in Ibadan, said that he will never allow any fund belonging to the state be frittered away.
He added that he will go after contractors who failed to deliver on assigned projects.
Makinde said, “People may think we are not going to go after them but I can give you the assurance that we will.
“Every kobo of Oyo State money that people have taken without delivering value to the people, they will give it back to us.
“Well, for the ones that we did, yes I am satisfied. But the previous contractor, we can all see, did not finish the work. We went round to look at the transformer but it is not yet energised and it is just really unacceptable.
“Basically, I am here to see the renovation work that has gone on in here and also listen to them about the challenges they are having. As you probably must have known, health is one of the major pillars of this administration.
“So, we have to keep working to ensure that the health care in Oyo State is well delivered.”
