Social Democratic Party, SDP, Oyo State chapter has warned the Oyo State Governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi to immediately stop boasting of parading array of achievements since he came to power in 2011.
The party in a statement signed by it state publicity secretary, Akeem Azeez while responding to series of achievements the governor laid claim to within six years of his administration urged him to stop all his unnecessary propaganda and look for how he could move the state forward with series of developmental programmes in the areas of security, education, health, agriculture.
According to the statement, “On security: 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. They have only degraded NURTW and Politically induced violence.
“Health. 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 effort. MTN came to the aid of Adeoyo Hospitals 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 government-owned hospital. Oyo health sector is an eyesore.
“Waterworks: There was nothing to show for the several millions of Naira sunk into water works because no single building can testify to the fact that water is running in their homes.
“Education: Oyo state has never had it so bad. Today Oyo state is ranked 29 in performance index of state in Nigeria behind war ravaged 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.
“Agriculture: The state government claimed that it has invested in agriculture not only by giving tractors but by establishing farms to bring farm produce to market for several months now we have not seen farm produce from Oyo State owned farm till today. The only thing this government is good at is propaganda not proper agenda. It has been over a year the governor invested millions into a farm in Iseyin but we have not seen farm produce coming to city”.
