While Governor of Abiola Ajimobi Oyo state boasted to be the “most prudent” governor in Nigeria, claiming to have governed the state well and devoid of insecurity amidst other legacies, the Social Democratic Party (SDP) has now disregarded that claim as they exposed the ‘mess’ embedded in the incumbent administration.
According to the publicity secretary of SDP, Alhaji Akeem Azeez, he advised the governor against spreading “propaganda” and pick up “proper agenda”.
Contrary to the achievement of security reeled out by Ajimobi, Azeez said that there are still ‘One Million Boys’ on the street threatening the peace of the state.
He said: ”We equally have area boys committing atrocities in Oyo in broad daylight while smoking weed unchecked.
”The robbery incidents have been on steady increase. Oyo state residents have seen a rise in area boys’ gangsterism, particularly the One million boys terrorising innocent residents.”
Concerning other social amenities, he further revealed that the works were never orchestrated by the Ajimobi led-All Progressives Congress, APC, administration.
”All thanks to MTN who came to renovate Adeoyo General Hospital. Our General hospitals have become an eyesore. It pains me when this government claimed glory that does not belong to them.
”USAID has sponsored Free Net distribution throughout the state to prevent malaria in the state and they used community leaders to distribute same. How does the reduction in Malaria attack become Oyo State’s effort.
”Thank God MTN came to the aid of Adeoyo Hospital by renovating and equipping it. The Hospital stinks like never before just like the rest all over the state”, he mentioned.”
He lamented the socio-economic status of the state since the emergence of Ajimobi, saying that the state had only moved from bad to worse on the index. He, however, advised the government to rather work harder on the bad sides.
”There is nothing to show for several millions of Naira sunk into water works because no single building can testify to the fact that water is running in their homes.
”Oyo state has never had it bad. Today, Oyo state is ranked 29 in performance index of state in Nigeria behind war ravaging Borno.”
”The last time I checked, Oyo state was moving from 26 and 29 in performance index by external examiners.”
”Schools in Oyo state lost subvention/running cost which was stopped by Ajimobi. Classroom are dilapidated. No conducive environment for learning. Where is the achievement in this?”
”The state government claimed that it has invested in agriculture not only by giving tractors but by establishing farms but for several months now we have not seen farm produce from the Oyo State owned farm till today.
”The only thing this government is good at is propaganda not proper agenda. It is over a year the governor invested millions into a farm in Iseyin but we have not seen farm produce coming to the city.
”It is high time the government stopped propaganda and face proper agenda to move the state forward.”
”They have taken us backward that will require someone with impeccable integrity and technical know how in turning moribund entity to succeed,” he said.
