The Oyo State chapter of the All Progressive Congress (APC) said the rejection by the Oyo State government of the relief packages sent to the state by the federal government was height of politicking and petty.
In a release by the state publicity Secretary of APC Dr Azeez Olatunde, the party stated that the action did not come as a surprise because the Government of Oyo State under Engr. Seyi Makinde was not the only State that benefited from the largesse adding that the rejection has political colouration.
“It’s very thoughtful of the Federal Government to have given the rice Palliative to four States of Ekiti, Ondo, Osun and Oyo States, the same day, To God be the Glory, None of the other three States that collected the rice Consignment the same day had made similar complaints.
“This is another point to buttress our observations of unnecessary Politicking of COVID-19 Pandemic by Oyo State Government, few of his unnecessary politicking of Developments in Oyo State will suffice our unbiased people of Oyo.”
The Party called on the state governor Engr Seyi Makinde to as a matter of urgency commence distribution of Palliative to the vulnerable indigent people of Oyo State, fumigate all Public Places and stop Politicising the health of Oyo State residents.
