Makinde orders former Oyo office holders to return govt vehicles

Oyo State governor Seyi Makinde Thursday ordered all former political office holders in the state to return government vehicles and other assets in their custody.

Makinde, in a statement by his spokesman Taiwo Adisa, said that the former officials must ensure the return of the state’s assets within 48 hours.

“It has been observed that some former political office holders are still in possession of official vehicles attached to their offices despite the fact that they are no longer in the service of Oyo State,” Adisa said.

“Consequently, His Excellency, Governor Seyi Makinde has, therefore, directed that all former political functionaries who are still in possession of Government vehicles should return the same to Government Transport Pool within 48 hours.”

He said anyone that fails to comply with the directive should be ready to face the consequences.

The governor’s spokesman stated that the government will not fail to take all necessary steps to ensure the retrieval of its assets.
