Why I Sacked Auxillary – Makinde

Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde has broken silence on why he sacked Mukaila Lamidi, the Chairman of the Oyo State Park Management System Disciplinary Committee.

Makinde stated that his reason was because there cannot be two bosses and two governments in a state.

Lamidi aka Auxiliary was sacked following the clash of interest that ensued between him and Governor Makinde.

The governor made this revelation on Sunday during a thanksgiving service to commemorate his Omituntun 2.0, held at the Cathedral of St. Peter, Aremo, Ibadan.

Makinde had through his ex-Chief of Staff, Segun Ogunwuyi on Tuesday, announced dissolution of the PMS headed by the former NURTW boss.

Oyo Police Command on the other hand, declared Auxillary wanted in connection with cases of attempted murder, causing grievous harm, arms dealing, murder, armed robbery within Oyo State and kidnapping at Oke-Ogun and Ibarapa axis of the state.

The governor said he wielded the big stick by dissolving PMS, adding no meaningful activity can take place in an atmosphere of insecurity.

But Makinde, while speaking at the thanksgiving service, assured that the government would do all necessary reforms in PMS to ensure those fomenting trouble were engaged.

“Before the last election, it wasn’t as if there is no thugs but we called them and told them the new Oyo State we want.

"We don’t want them to fight themselves, we don’t want fight to break from our garages every time.

“We told them, don’t fight anybody. if we are re-elected, we shall ensure we unite you so that everyone can get what belongs to him or her for people and the government to operate in the atmosphere of peace.

“But one of them said he can’t work with others.

"So I said two governments cannot operate in the state, there will only be one government.”

The governor said it took the grace of God for all his achievements in his first term.

He noted that the most important thing in Omituntun 2.0 is the upgrade of condition of the people, saying government shall do everything possible to make the upgrade is seemless and provide atmosphere for people to comply.
