Deputy Governor of Oyo State, Engineer Rauf Olaniyan has revealed that the monthly allocation the state receives from the federal government is not enough to embark on developmental projects.
He said this while addressing journalists at his Jericho Ibadan residence Friday evening.
The Deputy Governor made it known that the internally generated revenue in the state was also not enough, even the monthly allocation the state receives from the federal government decreases on a daily basis. This has made the state government to borrow money in order to start up some developmental projects.
“Allocation coming from Abuja cannot take us to any meaningful developmental level. The IGR is not increasing, the federal monthly allocation is decreasing on daily basis, he said.
“We should continue to leave in peace. Oyo State belongs to all of us. As journalists, if you see something that is good, tell us, if you see something that is bad, tell us,” he added.
