Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde on Friday taunted his critics, stating that he would continue to go to Aso Villa to see President Bola Tinubu.
Makinde has met with Tinubu more than once since the latter’s inauguration on May 29. Their last meeting was on Thursday when members of the PDP’s G5, which Makinde is a part of, met with the president.
During his speech at the flag-off of the dualisation of 8.3km Akobo, Ojurin/Odogbo Barracks, Olorunda Abas Junction on Friday, Makinde said he is unbothered by the critics of his visit to President Tinubu.
“As I go to Abuja to see the President, I know some people have been saying that since the inauguration of the new President, I have gone to Aso Rock about four times within a week,” he said.
“Where do you want me to go? Is it Yola you want me to go?
“Well, I will continue to go to where they will be able to refund Oyo state the monies we have spent on federal roads. So, I will continue to go to Aso Rock to plead for a refund.
“So, Mr Chairman of Lagelu Local Government, as soon as I collect my refund from the Federal Government, you too come and meet me to have your refund.”
The road, which was awarded for N9.6 billion, is to be funded by Lagelu Local Government.
Makinde also named the entire 15.5km stretch from Idi-Ape Junction to Olorunda Abaa after his ally, Nyesom Wike.
