Every contract awarded after the March 9 governorship election by the outgoing Governor of Oyo State, Abiola Ajimobi will be subjected to rigorous probe, Governor-elect, Mr Seyi Makinde, has said.
Makinde stated this in a statement made available bro newsmen by his spokesman, Mr Dotun Oyelade in Ibadan on Sunday.
Makinde said: “Events of the past two weeks have shown characteristics of targeted contract awards that were compiled in a haste and randomly awarded to empty government purse before the May 29 swearing-in date.
“While the government remains in place till May 28, awarding a N30bn new set of contracts in one day as was the case during last Wednesday’s executive meeting was curious and an aberration, especially when debts, as old as 2011 are left unpaid.”
According to Makinde, information he us getting from civil servants who have the interest of the state at heart pointed to the fact that there are plans to impede the smooth take off of the incoming administration by clearing all available funds.
The statement further indicated that civil servants who conspired with the outgoing administration on illegal and strange contract awards would blame themselves in a matter of weeks.
