Oyo governor-elect warns civil servants against ‘reckless contract’ execution

The Oyo state governor elect, Engineer Seyi Makinde has cautioned civil servants in the state against conniving with politicians, ‘no matter how highly placed’ to rush out contracts at this eleventh hour.

Engineer Makinde handed down the warning in  a statement made available to journalists and signed on his behalf by Prince Dotun Oyelade.

The governor elect, said in the statement that reports reaching him suggested that since weekend, when the gubernatorial results were fairly certain, top politicians in government have started putting pressures on civil servants to hasten and/or originate contracts and facilitate payments of contracts that are yet to be satisfactorily executed.

According to the governor elect: “The implication of such illicit deal should be very clear to any government worker who indulges in such collusion,.

“While government should fulfill it’s obligations to anyone, the incoming administration will not allow deliberate actions meant to castrate it by disgruntled politicians.”
