He, however, advised the Governor-elect “to request that the outgoing administration should refrain from the following actions which might be injurious to the financial health of the state.”

The move comes after the All Progressive Congress APC, in a petition filed before the Oyo State Election Petitions Tribunal by its governorship candidate Mr. Adebayo Adelabu alongside his party state chairman, Chief Akin Oke, prayed the tribunal to overturn Makinde’s victory.

Moments after filing the petition, Mr. Oke said; “I want to repeat what I said concerning the outcome of the last governorship election. First, I want to greet all the people who genuinely voted for us. But where there is a genuine case of fraud, of course why not go to court?
