Oyo State Governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde has alleged that officials of the immediate past administration in the state, led by late Senator Abiola Ajimobi looted N1 billion monthly from the state’s coffers during their tenure.
Ajimobi, who spoke on Wednesday at the flag-off of the 21km Ajia-Airport-New Ife Expressway road in Ajia town, said his administration was ready to put measures in place to retrieve all looted funds to develop the state’s infrastructure.
The governor vowed to retreive all the state’s funds looted by officials of the previous administration.
He said: “For the period of eight years they spent in office, they were only preoccupied with how to corner N1 billion monthly into their private pockets everyday they went to the office.
“They spent 96 months in office, that means they have Oyo States N96 billion with them. We will retrieve every fund that belongs to Oyo people for the purpose of infrastructure development.
“So, tell them that the EFCC of Oyo State is coming for them. I want to assure you that we will retrieve the stolen money of the state from them and use the funds to build infrastructure like this.”
