The Oyo State chapter of the All Progressive Congress (APC) has called on the State Governor Engr Seyi Makinde to as a matter of urgency declare lockdown in the state or tender his resignation letter as Oyo State Governor.
In a release by the Party publicity secretary Dr Azeez Olatunde said the excuse of “No Money” by the state government is not tenable considering the fact that government recently decided wrongly to fix some roads at the time the world is facing Global Pandemic.
The release stated that it is irresponsible for the state government facing rampaging pandemic and claims lack of money to keep the vulnerables of the state at home for two weeks and prioritize road projects above human lives.
The party emphasised the need for Governor Seyi Makinde to be alive to his responsibilities and brace up to the challenges of governance like the trending COVID-19 pandemic.
APC advised the state government to set up a committee to interface with corporate communities to turn in their widows mite to assists the people of the state rather than cosmetic Xmas decorations of streets that add no value to the health and lives of the residents of Oyo State.
