A socio-political group- Oyo Global Forum, OGF, has reacted to the advertorial placed by the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, to review the six years of Governor Abiola Ajimobi in office.
The monarch had in the advertorial commended the governor but said more needs to be done on the Oyo road.
But a statement by the General Secretary of the group, Hassan Adebayo, stated that “this unfortunate advertorial is a slap on the face of long-suffering sons and daughters of Oyo federal constituency, who have endured untold hardships arising from misgovernance and mismanagement of the state’s resources under the leadership of Governor Abiola Ajimobi.
“As we speak, road infrastructure projects started by Oyo state government several years ago have been abandoned, public primary and secondary schools are starved of resources and left in derelict states, workers are being owed salaries of more than six months in various cases, and citizens are living in daily fear of their lives and properties.
“Only a few days ago, students at the state-owned Emmanuel Alayande College of Education, frustrated by lack of government attention and incessant closure of the institution, went on a demonstration that turned violent, leading to disproportionate and irresponsible use of live ammunition by the security forces.
