The Oyo State Government has directed all political appointees in the first tenure of Governor Seyi Makinde to return all official vehicles allocated to them without wasting more time.
The state government advised the former appointees to return the vehicles on or before Friday, 25th August, 2023.
The state government gave the directive to the ex- aides on Friday, in a statement signed by the Secretary to the State Government, Professor Olanike Adeyemo.
The statement said that the Governor, the Deputy governor, the Speaker and members of the House of Assembly, the Chief Judge of the State, Judges, Secretary to the State Government, Chief of Staff, Head of Service, Commissioners, Permanent Secretaries, Accountant-General, Auditors-General and Surveyor-General are exempted from the directive.
The statement added that those gifted vehicles at the discretion of the governor are also exempted.
It added that officials who have documentary evidence to substantiate the claim of having been gifted official vehicles should present the evidence to schedule officers at their MDAs.
The statement made available to DAILY POST through the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Sulaimon Olanrewaju, enjoined those still in possession of official vehicles without due authorisation to return them on or before Friday, 25th August, 2023.
“Schedule officers in Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) in the State Public/Civil Service are mandated to recover official vehicles that have been taken away without due authorisation, if not returned on or before Friday, 25th August, 2023.”
