The Accord said the party is ready to challenge the APC and outrun the party come 2019 so as to save the good people of the state from a life of misery and starvation.
The statement reads :
“Though Oyo State didn’t tell us they have collected Paris Club refund but the FG has made us to know that the State received N7.9 billion apart from this month’s federal allocations and IGR running into several billions.
If it happens that the outstanding salaries and pensions are not cleared and the 9 months outstanding salaries of lecturers of over 34,000 LAUTECH students are not paid, then Oyo APC and Mr Ajumobi supposed to cover their face in shame and that’s why ACCORD must pursue them, overtake them and recorver Oyo State from them come 2019″
