- The Oyo State chapter of the Socialist Party of Nigeria (SPN) on Tuesday insisted that the state Governor, Mr. Seyi Makinde, has achieved nothing, but mere propaganda since his inauguration on May 29 this year.
SPN Secretary in Oyo state, Comrade Ayodeji Adigun made this assertion while addressing journalists at a press conference held in Ibadan which was organized to x-ray the achievements of the Governor since his inauguration.
We gathered that Makinde had in the last few days been boasting of achieving some feats. Part of the achievements is the ban of the state chapter of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), c
ancelation of the 3,000 compulsory levy at the public secondary schools, prompt payment of salaries and approval of 60 million naira as bursary for law students from the state among others.
But, Adigun while reacting, argued that none of the so-called achievements is to be celebrated.
Adigun said, “SPN is holding this press conference to call on the mass of workers, youths including the poor masses in the state that none of the so-called achievement is to be over-celebrated as they are individually and collectively tokenistic,
cosmetic and aimed at wooing the sympathy among the mass of the poor people in the state in order to create a favourable condition through which the regime will hope to commence the implementation of its anti-poor policies.”
He maintained that the governor has achieved nothing but mere propaganda.
