How We’ve Been Paying Salary On 25th For 6 Months Without Borrowing — Makinde

Seyi Makinde, governor of Oyo State, has finally revealed why he has been paying workers’ salary on the 25th of every month since he assumed office.
Speaking when members of the Ibadan Progressives Union, IPU, converged on the government house to honour him, Makinde explained that the need to ensure that the economy of Oyo State, every month, is reflated by, at least, 8billion Naira made him embark on move.

According to him: “When we got into office six months ago, we outlined a few things we needed to do. One of them is to ensure that the economy of Oyo State, every month, is reflated by, at least, 8billion Naira. We thought of how to achieve this even when we need to pay salaries of workers every 25th. When we started, some were saying we can’t sustain that policy action but this is the sixth month we have fulfilled the obligation without borrowing a dime.

Now, on the issue of sustainability, I am an Engineer and if you see an Engineer digging a hole in front of your house, he already knows how the structure he will build on it looks like. So, we will sustain the tempo.

“People will always say that power gets into the head of politicians when they get into office. For example, if you want a 10 power-horse engine to tow a car, you can move from 0-100 km/hour withing 3-4 seconds but if you get to a point where you are supposed to apply the brake and you are unable to, you will lose control.

So, power without control is nothing. In fact, it is a dysfunction. So, the people of Oyo State have given me the power but I will apply all the control. Here, we are just starting, you have not seen anything yet.”

Saying that his late father was a member of IPU, he said that “So, let me properly address the issue of environmental.
