Seyi Makinde

The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Oyo governorship election, Seyi Makinde, has threated to sue Governor Abiola Ajimobi over his refusal publish details of the state’s finances.

In a statement by his media aide, Dotun Oyelade, the PDP candidate disclosed that he had made public demands from Ajimobi’s administration to publish what it had done with the N157bn debt incurred in the past seven years and particularly, the borrowing of N70bn between 2016 and 2017.

Makinde stated that he had waited for seven months for an explanation from the state government to no avail and has, therefore, taken the decision to go to court and invoke the Freedom of Information Act (FOI) in order to get a public response from the government.

The PDP chieftain said he intended to compel the government to explain its statement that it did not owe those whose properties it destroyed to pave way for some road projects in the metropolis.
