The newly elected Oyo State governor, Seyi Makinde on Tuesday decried the alleged transfer of money from the state’s coffer by the state government.
According to the Governor-elect who released a statement in respect to the issue said, the state government in the last 72 hours has been moving millions of naira from the state’s account.
The governor-elect disclosed he has been alerted by a credible source within the government of the illegal contracts that are being awarded to cart away a huge sum of money from the government’s coffers.
The statement read, “The governor-elect may be forced to open the books if the aim is to rush money out through foul means before May 29 and leave the state in further financial crisis.
“According to Makinde, cases of unscheduled recruitments and appointments, including back-dated ones, have also been brought before him.
“Government will not hesitate to reverse any such move with consequences on those found to have committed infractions of the civil service guidelines.”
