The opposition party in the state also accused Makinde’s administration of obtaining over N40 billion loan within 11 months, warning against plunging the state into bankruptcy.

The party, in a statement by its Assistant Publicity Secretary, Prince Ayobami Adejumo on Wednesday in Ibadan, the state capital, said that the development was a manifestation of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) administration’s resolve to subject the state to bankruptcy, thus bringing it down to her knees in no time, while the governor and a few people within the corridor of power must have succeeded in enriching themselves and some private institutions where they have interest.
