Following the clash of interest that ensued between the former Chairman of disciplinary committee of the Park Management System in Oyo state, Alhaji Mukaila Lamidi, aka Auxiliary and Governor Seyi Makinde, the governor, has broken silence on why he sacked PMS boss, saying there can’t be two governments in a state.

The governor, made this revelation on Sunday, during a thanksgiving service to commemorate his Omituntun 2.0, held at the Cathedral of St. Peter, Aremo, Ibadan.

Recall that, Makinde, through his ex-Chief of Staff, Segun Ogunwuyi, last Tuesday, announced dissolution of the PMS headed by the former NURTW boss.

Oyo Police Command on the other hand, declared Auxillary wanted in connection with cases of attempted murder, causing grievous harm, arms dealing, murder, armed robbery within Oyo state and kidnapping at Oke-ogun and Ibarapa axis of the State.

The governor said he wielded the big stick by dissolving PMS, saying no meaningful activity can take place in an atmosphere of insecurity.

But Makinde, while speaking at the thanksgiving service, assured government would do all necessary reforms in PMS to ensure those fomenting trouble were engaged.

The governor said, “Before the last election, it wasn’t as if there is no thugs but we called them and told them the new Oyo State we want. We don’t want them to fight themselves, we don’t want fight to break from our garages every time.”

“We told them, don’t fight anybody. if we are re-elected, we shall ensure we unite you so that everyone can get what belongs to him or her for people and the government to operate in the atmosphere of peace.”

“But one of them said he can’t work with others. so I said two governments cannot operate in the state, there will only be one government.”
