Makinde to Ajimobi: It is illegal to take away official cars

The tango between the incumbent and immediate past government on the issue of cars carted away continued on Sunday with the Governor Seyi Makinde’s government chiding the former governor Abiola Ajimobi government for defending its taking away some government vehicles.

Apparently making reference to a press conference by aides of Ajimobi last Friday, Chief Press Secretary to Governor Seyi Makinde, Mr Taiwo Adisa, in a statement on Sunday, decried Ajimobi’s aides’ attempt to defend “propensity to loot government property” as one that debases the true Omoluabi culture.

In the statement, Makinde said the Ajimobi’s aides should not confuse the boarded vehicles with illegally taken cars, adding that also to be questioned is whether the appropriate amount was paid for the vehicles that were boarded.
