Oyo govt replies Makinde’s spokesperson, says ‘we will not be stampeded into inactivity’

Oyo State Government has reacted to a statement it described as unfounded and mischievous allegation of emptying the treasury by the spokesperson of Engr. Seyi Makinde, the governor elect, Prince Dotun Oyelade.

The state government, in a statement issued on Monday  by its commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Toye Arulogun reads, “ordinarily, government should ignore the antics of the spokesperson of the Governor Elect in the state since the path of calumny is one in which he treads with absolute familiarity.

“The Oyo State Government, therefore for the umpteenth time wishes to implore members of the public to ignore the inflammatory statements of the serial propagandist. We refuse to trade words with him any further”.

The statement, a copy obtained by Mega Icon Magazine continued, ” for the avoidance of doubt however, we hereby state unequivocally that the accusations are not only patently false but are figments of his imagination the state government’s earlier statement on a related matter on the siphoning of funds subsists.

“Meanwhile, let it be reiterated that the mandate of the Ajimobi administration will not lapse until the 28th of May 2019. Therefore no amount of sabre-rattling will cause the government to fold its hands counting days instead of making the remainder of its days count”
