Governor-elect of Oyo State, Engr Seyi Makinde, has said that he looks forward to a progressive relationship with the new NLC exco in oyo state led by Comrade Titilola Sodo but warns against any booby traps in the planned negotiation by the outgoing government.
According to a statement signed by Prince Dotun Oyelade on his behalf, Makinde said that he was satisfied with the level of rapport he had with the congress during and after the election and hope that this will be maintained as the new NLC executive assumes the mantle of leadership.
According to Makinde, nothing short of the interest of workers will be acceptable to his administration as he applauded the rancour free consensus that heralded the new President as a good sign that democratic maturity has always been a virtue of the NLC.
Makinde however queried the intention and sincerity of the outgoing government to open negotiation with labour on Monday exactly 30 days to it’s exit.
According to the statement, there is nothing the lame duck government wants to achieve other than to complicate things for the incoming government in exactly the same manner. it is doing in awarding fresh contracts and rolling out largesse to fellow politicians and friends.
The governor-elect said he believes that the new NLC leadership is circumspect enough to understand the ongoing theatrics.
