APC blames Makinde for infrastructure deficit

spot_imgspot_img

NIGERIA AFRICA – There is trouble for governors all over the world but the worst of it has come to the Governor and his party which is the People’s Democratic Party in the state of Oyo in Nigeria.

Oyo State chapter of the All-Progressives Congress (APC) earlier this week flayed Governor Seyi Makinde and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) over infrastructure deficit and worsening insecurity in the state. Infrastructure has been an issue for a little while in the Pyo state and this governor in particular had made public announcements regarding how he will improve the conditions if he were to be elected.

It is only normal that one’s voters or even the people who voted him in would expect him to keep his promises as the promises made were not difficult to keep. Infrastructure is needed for any country to grow. It is also understandable that most politicians make these promises but it is very rare that they keep them.

The most shocking thing here is though no one would have thought that they would expect him to keep his promises or call him out on the fact that he didn’t do what he had promised to do.

In a statement, the state’s Publicity Secretary of APC, Olawale Sadare, said Makinde’s ineptitude was responsible for the widening gap between Oyo and other states across Nigeria in terms of all-round development.

The APC also berated the ruling PDP, alleging that the party was only interested in siphoning public funds rather than developing infrastructure and offering good governance.

It, however, urged the governor to act decisively on the menace of armed robbers, kidnappers and ritual killers, who are tormenting residents of Ibadan, Ogbomoso, Ibarapa and other parts of the state.

The party also warned Makinde to stop forcing adulterated and fake dividends of democracy down the throat of the hapless citizenry.
