Reason Oyo State Delayed Distribution Of Palliative – Makinde

We Have Paid Salaries, Pensions, Return To Work – Makinde Tells Protesting Workers

The governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde has opened up on the reason the state government has not started sharing palliatives.

According to the governor, his government has refused to begin distribution because of the need to effectively plan and embark on sustainable action that would secure the state economy.

Makinde stated this on Wednesday while flagging off the first phase of the distribution of palliative packages to the poor and vulnerable residents of the state.

According to him, the effort which targets 200,000 households and one million families in the state is coming up under the Sustainable Action for Economic Recovery (SafER) package to cushion the effect of fuel subsidy removal.

Speaking, Makinde explained that the state, after receiving 3,000 bags of rice from the Federal Government decided to delay the sharing, knowing that the quantity would be inadequate to reach the one million families through the targetted 200,000 households.

He added that to complement the effort, the state government waited till it procured an additional 37,000 bags amounting to a total of 40,000 bags of rice to be shared.

According to the governor, “Some people have been going round on radio and social media asking the whereabouts of the 3,000 bags of rice given to Oyo State by the federal government.

“Others are saying the Federal Government gave us N5 billion and we have embezzled it. Some say there is a trust deficit between the government and the people. Is it so in Oyo State? Don’t you love this administration?”
