Abandoned projects: Oyo people can't be fool all the time-Makinde - ITREALMS

ITREALMS: 
The Oyo State Governor, Engineer Seyi Makinde said on Monday that the Oyo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) can only fool some people all the time but that it cannot fool all the people all the time.

The Governor, who was reacting to the management of government projects during the administration of the immediate past administration in the state, said that the manner in which many government projects were abandoned especially following bogus commissioning exercises left much to be desired.

His comments were coming on the heels of criticisms by the Oyo State APC of his plans to reconstruct Iwo Road Interchange with the sum of N8 billion.

A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Taiwo Adisa, indicated that the Governor made the statement while speaking to newsmen after inspection tour of some government installations.

The governor stated that the previous administration in the State attempted to fool the people of the State with bogus contracts and projects to the detriment of the people.

He also said that the immediate past administration moved equipment from Jericho Specialist Hospital to another centre in Olodo to stage a commissioning exercise, leaving the Jericho facility empty.

The Governor had visited Sanyo Area of Ibadan, where the State Government plans to move the Oyo Road Transport Management Agency (OYRTMA) and the Jericho Specialist Maternity Hospital, Jericho, Ibadan,

He noted that the previous administration put in lots of resources in projects and ended up abandoning the same even after some bogus commissioning exercise.

He decried the situation of the Jericho Specialist Hospital, which he said would be immediately moved to the new complex as a matter of emergency.
