I’ve never deducted from LG fund —Ajimobi


By Tunde Ogunesan

THE Oyo State governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, has boasted that the he has never tampered with the allocation of the 33 local government caretaker chairmen in the state, three years into his administration. The state governor made this submission while featuring on a live television programme on the state- owned station, Broadcasting Corporation of Oyo State (BCOS), on Monday, in commemoration of third year anniversary of his government. Ajimobi said: “No local government can say I deduct anything from their allocations. It is almost three years I assumed office and no one can say I expect return from him or deduct from his allocation.” The programme was anchored by veteran broadcaster, Bamiji Ojo, assisted by three panelists, made up of Onaolapo Gbolagun from BCOS, Folake Otuyemi of Splash FM and Taiwo Adedayo of  Yoruba newspaper, Alaroye. The governor affirmed that no civilian government in the state matched his administration’s record of development in the state. He added that his administration had dualised various roads across the state and not the state capital only. In his reaction to allegation that his government was not patronising local contractors, Ajimobi denounced it. He noted that “over 70 per cent construction projects in the state were awarded to Oyo State indigenes. In about 300 contracts awarded so far, only six were given to reputable international road contractors.”
