Social Democratic Party (SDP), in Oyo State has warned Governor Abiola Ajimobi of the state to stop boasting of array of achievements since he came to power in 2011.
The party advised the governor to put an end to his propaganda but face “proper agenda” in order to move the state forward in the areas of security, education, health and agriculture.
SDP while responding to statements made by the governor while speaking on his 6 years achievements on Monday said “The APC government’s 6 years is a disaster of unimaginable proportion”.Publicity Secretary of SDP, Alhaji Akeem Azeez in a statement made available to DAILY POST on Monday said despite boasting of taming insecurity, street gangsters like ‘One Million Boys’ were still terrorizing innocent citizens in the state.
“The Government has gone to sleep in the area of security because we now have street gangsters like one million boys terrorising innocent residents all over the state capital.
“We equally have area boys committing atrocities in Oyo in broad daylight while smoking weed unchecked.
“The robbery incidents have been on steady increase. Oyo State residents have seen a rise in area boys’ gangsterism, particularly the One million boys terrorising innocent residents.
“All thanks to MTN who came to renovate Adeoyo General Hospital. Our General hospitals have become an eyesore. It pains me when this government claimed glory that does not belong to them.
“USAID has sponsored Free Net distribution throughout the state to prevent malaria in the state and they used community leaders to distribute same. How does the reduction in Malaria attack become Oyo State’s effort.
“Thank God MTN Came to the aid of Adeoyo Hospital by renovating and equipping it. The Hospital stinks like never before just like the rest all over the state. How many top government functionaries patronise state owned hospital? Oyo health sector is an eyesore.“There is nothing to show for several millions of Naira sunk into water works because no single building can testify to the fact that water is running in their homes.
“Oyo state has never had it bad. Today, Oyo state is ranked 29 in performance index of state in Nigeria behind war ravaging Borno. The last time I checked, Oyo State was moving from 26 and 29 in performance index by external examiners.
“Schools in Oyo state lost subvention/running cost which was stopped by Ajimobi. Classroom are dilapidated. No conducive environment for learning. Where is the achievement in this?
“The state government claimed that it has invested in agriculture not only by giving tractors but by establishing farms but for several months now we have not seen farm produce from the Oyo State owned farm till today.
“The only thing this government is good at is propaganda not proper agenda. It is over a year the governor invested millions into a farm in Iseyin but we have not seen farm produce coming to the city.
“It is high time the government stopped propaganda and face proper agenda to move the state forward”, Azeez maintained. The SDP spokesman said the state need a man of integrity to turn around the fortunes of the state.
“They have taken us backward that will require someone with impeccable integrity and technical know how in turning moribund entity to succeed”, he said.
