All Progressives Congress (APC) Oyo state chapter has said nothing remains under the current Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde in terms of security as he has lost full control.
The state publicity secretary, AbdulAzeez Olatunde, in statement on Sunday, said last Saturday arson that occurred in Igangan town showed governor Seyi Makinde has lost full control of the security architecture of the state.
Olatunde said ” The overnight murderous arson of Saturday 5th June 2021, unleashed on the sleepy town of IGANGAN in Ibarapa North Local Government of Oyo State is one mayhem too many. Imagine the Palace of ASIGANGAN OF IGANGAN, Many innocent Lives and Properties like houses and Fuel Filling Stations and even a lot of ancient archival properties lost in one fell swoop.”
APC Oyo state queries what the governor does with the monthly security votes.
“What is the essence of the monthly security vote our governor collects? , if it could not be channeled towards SECURING the Lives and Properties of the residents and indigenes of Oyo State?”
“Obviously, the current situation of Oyo State was not what was the Government of Engr SEYI MAKINDE and PDP took over from APC Government of Sen Abiola Ajimobi in 2019.”
“Retrospectively, all Governments would always have it’s own Challenges but failure to nip the festering Challenges in the bud is what differentiate Failed Government as being witnessed in Oyo State under Engr SEYI MAKINDE from what obtained under APC Government of Sen Abiola Ajimobi whose Number One achievement for its 8 years tenure was security of lives and properties.”
“Whenever PDP Government is shown its Failed Score Card on security, they would always pass the buck by deflecting away with excuse as if it requires rocket science formulae to secure lives and properties”
The party urges governor Seyi Makinde to call security summit in the state in order to “find lasting solutions to the Security Challenges facing us in Oyo State and forget the rhetorics of having ÀMỌ̀TẸ́KÙN and OPERATION BURST that have shown to be INEFFECTIVE so far“
Efforts to get the PDP Oyo state publicity secretary to react proved abortive as him mobile numbers were switched off as at the press time.
