I will give preference to local contractors- Governor Makinde
Oyo State Governor, Engineer Seyi Makinde says his administration will give preference to local contractors in order to boost the economy of the state.
A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Mr Taiwo Adisa indicates that Governor Makinde stated this while addressing the crowd of PDP loyalists in Ogbomoso.
Governor Makinde who noted that he has not awarded any contracts since assumption of office promised to give contracts to those who would ensure capital flight.
He assured the people that his government would not marginalise any zone in the state and urged party faithful to be patient with his government on the issue of appointments.
“You will not labour in vain. I know that many people would have begun to look at what they can benefit. I want to assure you that those who worked will benefit. Other people will not reap where you sowed.”
“We want to develop our local economy and like they say, we want to ensure that Oyo’s money stays in Oyo.
“All contracts will be awarded to those who will improve our economy and we will make the indigenous contractors partake in the running of affairs.”
Engineer Makinde also lauded the people of Ogbomoso for their support during the last election, which he said translated to victory for him and the PDP.
In a remark, Former Majority Leader House of Representatives, Mrs Mulikat Akande lauded the governor for coming to meet the people of Oyo North Senatorial District like he did in 2018 before he was elected Governor. Iyabo Adebisi
