The gubernatorial candidate of the PDP in oyo state, Engr Seyi Makinde has said that by parading the so-called beneficiaries of the Federal govt N-Power Programme and threatening them that the programme will stopped if they do not vote for the APC is cheap and desperate blackmail.
In a release issued by his campaign organization and signed by Prince Dotun Oyelade, the federal govt largesse is wide open and vulnerable to massive fraud, while only a very small margin is doled out to the masses because of the general elections.
According to him, the ruling party and some govt officials are the major beneficiaries.
Makinde said that by forcing the people to abandon their little businesses and attend a rally to show gratitude for a monumental fraud, it is obvious that the state govt is in panic mode.
Makinde said that Gov Ajimobi and the APC are celebrating a non-event when they should be grappling with the N40bn they are owing primary school teachers and inability to pay serving primary school teachers salaries.
PDP said that the state govt must explain why serving teachers who were deceptively given mass promotion were not being paid the required increament while contracts that will bring kick-backs are still being awarded at the twilight of the administration
