A Year After: No Single Project Yet To Be Completed- Bayo Adelabu Criticise Gov. Makinde


The Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the 2019 election, Oloye Bayo Adelabu, has criticised the State government led by Gov. SEYI MAKINDE for embarking on populist programmes that are short-lived.

The former deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria stated this at a media parley and lunch with journalists in the state, added that he was grateful that he did not win the 2019 election.

He further added that this administration is yet to fulfill those promises he made to the people before coming on board. Adding that the wish and yearn of the people is still on their wish list without any assurance of implementation.

“Everything this administration promised the people of the state is still on their wish list 16 months after coming on board. With the caliber of people that have returned to APC, no party can stand the way of our party,” he said.

He said almost two years after Governor Seyi Makinde was inaugurated, nothing concrete could be pointed to as achievement of PDP-led government.

“No state needs a governor before salary is paid. When salary is paid through statutory allocations and it goes straight to the Accountant General, they take it to the bank and they pay. Why must that be the major achievement of any governor?

“And when you embark too much on populist programmes, which, in most cases, are not always giving the state sustainable development, it is more about immediate consumption.

“Populist programmes are short-lived. Within a short period, people will know that this man doesn’t really have so much to offer in terms of sustainable infrastructural development.

“It is going to two years now, can you point at one or two major projects that this government has completed? Everything is still on their wish list and if wishes were horses, beggars would ride,” he said.
