The Oyo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described as shameful former governor Abiola Ajimobi’s description of the issue of cars purportedly carted away by former government officials as mundane.
It would be recalled that the Makinde led government had bemoaned that political functionaries of the immediate past government were in possession of government vehicles, asking them to return the same to government transport pool. But Ajimobi had asked Makinde to face the serious business of governance than lament on such mundane issues.
The ruling party, in a statement by its publicity secretary, Mr Akeem Olatunji, on Sunday however said Ajimobi should rather prevail on his loyalists to return government property and not justify theft.
In what it described as not statesmanlike, the PDP said it was sad that Ajimobi was playing to the gallery and pampering wrongdoing in the carting away of cars.
With reference to Ajimobi’s proclamations of a hugely successful eight years in office, the PDP said those achievements fell short of expectations of residents of the state and was a celebration of failure and uncompleted projects.
This is as the party said it was aware of plans by Ajimobi to pressurize the Makinde government to fail from the outset through his utterances, last-minute spending and refusal to cooperate with the transition committee. It however said that the new driver in Oyo State is competent and ready to remove all cobwebs and cogs in the wheels of progress.
