The Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde has warned the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state to desist from perpetrating falsehood against him.
The governor stated this on Thursday while reacting to a recent comment from the APC claiming that he approved the sum of N578 million to rehabilitate a Magistrate Court and Police Station.
Speaking via a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Taiwo Adisa, the governor insisted that falsehood would not save the APC in the upcoming election.
He explained that contrary to ruling party allegations, what was approved at the meeting was a construction of a Magistrate Court and a Police Station
He said, “Again, the APC lied that the governor approved the sum of N578 million to rehabilitate a Magistrate Court and Police Station. This is another falsehood.
“What the State Executive Council approved at its meeting on Tuesday was a contract for the construction of a Magistrate Court and a Police Station at the new site of the Agodi Correctional Service, which is being relocated to the Olomi area in Ibadan.”
HausaToday reports Makinde is a governor on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He defeated the then APC candidate, Adebayo Adelabu, and other candidates of other political parties in 2019.
