The Labour Party in Oyo State has described as absurd what it termed the misuse of the state tax payers’ money by Governor Abiola Ajimobi to place a strip advert costing N800,000 on a daily basis in a national daily newspaper to abuse his political opponents.
The party, which observed that the money, if judiciously expended, would have taken care of the unpaid salaries of some of the state civil servants and renovations of most of the dilapidated public schools that are in a state of comatose, advised the governor to always endeavour to base his arguments on issues.
The party speaking through her spokesman, Alhaji Rasaq Folorunso, said that the governor rather than resulting to mudslinging, should use his time to correct the anomalies in his policies. According to the party, most of the environmental mess his administration claimed to have taken care of were all back with refuse heaps dotting all party of the Ibadan city.
Meanwhile, the party condemned the violence which it said erupted in Ogbomosoland. It explained that it was a misplaced statement for APC to resort to blatant lies. According to Folorunso, “Labour party is peaceful in her conducts and activities; and bear no grudge against anyone.”
