We’ll drag Ajimobi to EFCC, ICPC – Oyo PDP vows


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Oyo state has threatened to drag the immediate past governor of the state, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, before the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Independent Corrupt Practices and Related Offences Commission (ICPC). 

Oyo PDP in a statement in Ibadan by its state’s Publicity Secretary, Engineer Akeem Olatunji, asked Senator Ajimobi to come out clean and account for how he spent Oyo state’s funds during his eight year rule, 

“We won’t allow things lie low for too long. In due time this party will officially file a petition to the EFCC and ICPC with details of how the APC deliberately plunged Oyo state into a debt of over 150bn with absolutely nothing to show for it.” he said.

The party spokesman added “the Oyo state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) should ” bury itself in ignominy for turning out a below par performance within its eight year rule of the Pacesetter state”, saying “the name of APC in Oyo can conveniently be replaced with hunger, oppression and deception.”

“That the rule of the APC between 2011 and 2019 was lacklustre would be stating the obvious but the party also signifies deception at its height. The people of Oyo State are trying hard to erase the sad memories foisted on them by the APC.

“Instead of being sober and coming out to profusely apologise for their failings, the APC is showcasing a sort of repulsive audacity, that is only drawing the people to anger.”

Oyo PDP emphasized  “we are, however, happy that the government of Engineer Seyi Makinde is striving hard to memory everyone is cusion the sad effects of the mindless rule of the trying to heal the emotional and psychological trauma the APC government plunged the state into in the last eight years,” 

“APC is not a party to be taken seriously by anybody, their accusation of Makinde using Rivers construction prototype in Oyo state is laughable, they need not be reminded that Seyi Makinde is a world class engineer with a global brand, and as far as the masses are satisfied and happy with the PDP administration under Governor Makinde, anything APC says is inconsequential, null and void. 

“We know that they are intimidated by the growing political reputation of Makinde and that the rising profile has taken their peace and sleep away.”

The party then urged the people of Oyo state “to continue to give their full support to Governor Seyi Makinde in his quest to achieve his economic plan and developmental plans”, the party in a release Monday.
