Ajimobi, a two-term governor of the state, was in office between 2011 and 2019.

“Today, we inaugurated a 10-man committee, led by Engineer Damola Falade-Fatila, to review contracts awarded by Oyo State Government from 2017 to 2019,” he said.

“I thanked all members of the committee for agreeing to serve and charged them to discharge their duties professionally. Our goal is to ensure public funds are utilised judiciously and projects awarded benefit our people and the state.”

In March, Makinde had accused Ajimobi of awarding a N30 billion new set of contracts in one day.

Makinde had vowed to probe the award of contracts by the previous administration, especially the ones awarded after the governorship election.

Ajimobi, had however, maintained that he was ready for a probe.

“When they get there, let them cancel all the contracts we have signed. Let them investigate us and if we have stolen, they should arrest us,” Ajimobi had said.
