Former Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State has
been exposed. His successor. Governor Seyi Makinde revealed that his predecessor
awarded N7billion contract to a contractor with an untraceable office address.
He added that the contract was for the
construction of the Moniya-Iseyin Road, Ojedeji Village in Akinyele local
government of the state.
He said that N2 billion of the total contract sum
was paid to the unknown contractor and lamented that the road, which served as
the economic route for farm and agricultural produce into the state was abandoned
after the faceless contractor collected N2 billion, with little or nothing to
show for it on the project site.
He said his effort at locating the site address
of the contractor to interact with them on the level of work done despite the
amount of money released, revealed that the given office address was not only
untraceable but the name could not be ascertained.
He said: “My impression of the work done so far if I will have to evaluate and cost it, couldn’t have been more than N150 million.
“It was a faceless contractor and we don’t even know where their office0s are located. I could have stopped by to go discuss with them but there is nowhere to stop by.”
