The Oyo state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked the immediate past governor of the state, Senator Abiola Ajimobi to stop playing to the gallery.
The Oyo PDP was reacting to Senator Ajimobi’s defence of elements in his government who took away cars and other items belonging to the state.
The party in a statement by its publicity secretary, Engineer Akeem Olatunji, said that it was shameful to see Ajimobi describe the monumental theft of government property by some persons as a ‘mundane issue
The statement read: “We read with serious consternation, comments credited to the former governor of Oyo state, Senator Ajimobi, especially in respect of the dissolved local governments and the missing cars belonging to the state government.
“While we are very much aware that the state government is dealing with the twin issues with all the seriousness, we are, however, appalled by the statement credited to the former governor, which amounts to a father attempting to pamper a thieving child.
“We know that it is not in the character of statesmen to pander towards the axis of evil and pamper wrongdoing by whoever and that is why we are saddened at this attempt by Ajimobi to a man of give justification to allegation of theft.
“We believe that having served the two constitutionally guaranteed terms of office as governor of Oyo state, Senator Ajimobi should remain grateful to the people of Oyo state.
“There cannot be any ambiguity in the statement credited to the new government on the issue of cars taken away by operatives of the last administration.
“Some officials of the government led by Ajimobi refused to return cars and other items belonging to the state after their tour of duty. That cannot be a matter to be celebrated or described as ‘mundane’ by anyone.”
The PDP said what is expected of Ajimobi is to prevail on his loyalists to return any property belonging to the state they might have illegally kept aside.
The party continued: “On the dissolved local governments, we are convinced that Ajimobi is merely playing to the gallery of partisan politics here.
“We do not wish to say much on this because the matter is before the court of law. We will, however, place on record that all efforts aimed at pulling the administration of Governor Makinde down, even before it took off are already falling by the wayside.
“Our people are not unaware of the series of landmines positioned on the path of the new government by the administration of Ajimobi. We are all witnesses to the series of last-minute spending and the refusal to cooperate with the transition committee. Those are not the antics of statesmen.
“We will also state it loud and clear that the PDP is not in doubt that the new driver in Oyo state is competent and ready to remove all cobwebs and cogs in the wheels of progress. We will all be witnesses to the success story.”
