The governor stated that his administration remained determined to retrieve every kobo of the state’s resources stolen by some members of the immediate past administration of (APC) in the state.
“When we came in, we discovered they finished spending the money within one year. They stole the money and I know those behind the stealing and I am also after them right now. There is a company called Chinese Global. They said they are Chinese people, but we know the people behind it. The company has been shut down as we speak.
“And I said if the company did, was the asphalt used to repair roads without employing new people and giving out contracts? He said the money was moved from OYSROMA to Chinese Global and two other companies without any supply from the companies.
“This is a promise I made and I am not saying it outside of what I have discussed directly with the people involved. Oyo state’s money will come back. Those who stole the money are the members of the APC who were in the government then.
“The money is in excess of N12 billion to N15 billion. Those who stole it are not Chinese but from Oyo state. We know them, and very soon, wherever they have investment or property in the world, I will go after them and collect this money for our state.”
