I Won’t Allow Recovered Money To Be Looted Again – Gov. Makinde
Makinde stated this when the management team of the bank paid him a courtesy visit in his office on Wednesday in Ibadan.
“The account is going to be made open to everybody because we don’t want to recover money and have it looted again.
”We want to recover the money in a very transparent manner; we want people to see what we have done with the money recovered.
”We want people to know what could have been done with such money which actually belongs to them.
”Some state’s money being seized from individuals by the EFCC will be returned to the state’s coffers and will be kept in the account.
”We want to charge you to hold us accountable too because this government cannot compromise the trust which the people of the state repose on us. We will never ask you to do any cover-up job for us,” he said.
The governor expressed his administration’s readiness to foster a partnership with bankers, processors and agric business experts ”because agriculture is one of the pillars that this administration is resting on and that is the tool we intend to use to expand our economy.”
He assured the bank that his government would not discriminate against it because it was not among the big banks, assuring that equal opportunity would be given to all government’s partners.
Makinde urged the bank to expand its network in Ibadan and the state in general so that his government would be able to utilise the attendant opportunities.
