Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde
The Oyo State Chapter of All Progressives Congress has urged Governor Seyi Makinde to explain the source of his N48bn asset made public on Monday.
The state chairman of the party, Mr. Akin Oke, said this in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Iseyin on Tuesday.
“I don’t think I want to make comment on the issue, since I have no idea, but it raises a number of issues.
“He just declared what he has; how he came about the asset is not there,” Oke said.
The party leader said it would be too early to assess Makinde’s performance as governor, since he has so far spent just a few weeks in office.
“Going by my experience and exposure , I think it is too early to honestly assess a governor just after a few weeks office. I would rather wait till after 100 days or even after six months.
“To start assessing people after six weeks in office will be so unfair if one wants to be honest to his conscience,” he said.
