In a statement issued on his behalf by Taiwo Adisa, his chief press secretary, the governor said he would take all necessary steps to ensure that all assets illegally taken away by the former officials are returned.

“It has been observed that some former political office holders are still in possession of official vehicles attached to their offices despite the fact that they are no longer in the service of Oyo state,” the statement read.

“Consequently, His Excellency, Governor Seyi Makinde has, therefore, directed that all former political functionaries who are still in possession of Government vehicles should return the same to Government Transport Pool within 48 hours.”
