Ogbomoso - A former governor of Oyo State, Adebayo Alao-Akala, on Sunday in Ogbomoso asked Governor Abiola Ajimobi to stop blaming previous administrations for the poor state of infrastructure in the state.
The former governor said Ajimobi should rather brace up for the challenges of governance and accept responsibility for negligence.
The APC statement had blamed the past administrations of Alao-Akala and Rasheed Ladoja in the state for the decay in infrastructure.
The state’s APC Chairman, Akin Oke, had on Sunday claimed that the Ajimobi administration inherited decayed infrastructure from previous administrations.
"You will recall that 26 bridges collapsed in Oyo State during the August (2012) flood.
"Between the governments of Ladoja and Alao-Akala, you cannot point to any meaningful construction of bridges carried out by them.
Alao-Akala, however, said his administration embarked on the construction of bridges to check flooding in the state.
Also speaking, Bashiru Lawal, the Chairman of Accord Party in the state, said the Ajimobi-led administration must take responsibility for the decaying infrastructure in the state.
He decried the poor state of public utilities in the state, saying incidents of collapsed bridges in the state were becoming worrisome.
