How Former Governor, Others Shared Contract Money, Seyi Makinde Reveals

Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state has revealed how monies meant for the execution of contracts in Oyo state were shared by the former Governor and others, with only 10% of the total cost for the execution of project made available.

The Oyo state governor revealed this in a series of Tweets to mark his 100 days in office.

The Governor did not mention the name of any governor specifically, but it was almost obvious that he was referring to former governor Abiola Ajimobi.

In the Tweets, Makinde said he declared his assets simply because he wanted to be held accountable, saying that what he met on ground was a situation where a project for which money was allocated, got only about 10% of the total funds for execution.

“I declared my assets because I want to be held accountable. What we met on ground is a situation where a project for which money is allocated, gets only about 10% of the total funds for execution.

“Because as we were told, 50% goes back to the Governor, 30% to the appointee who allocated the project out of which 10% goes to the Governor’s wife. I have told them anyone who does that now will be brought to book,” he said.
