Seyi Makinde dragged silly for donating N100m for renovation of Soun of Ogbomoso’s palace
Hours after donating a whooping N100 million for the renovation of Soun of Ogbomoso’s palace, Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state is being dragged by agitated Nigerians on social media describing the action as “misplaced priority”.
WITHIN NIGERIA had earlier reported that the King’s palace was vandalized during the ongoing #EndSARS protest by residents of the community after he was accused of being nonchalant about Jimoh Isaiq’s death.
WITHIN NIGERIA recalls that Jimoh Isiaq was reportedly shot dead by a police officer, during the #EndSARS protest in Ogbomosho last Saturday.
We also reported how the governor of the state paid a visit to the palace and announced a N100 million donation towards the renovation of the palace and N1 million to families of those killed during the protest.
However many Nigerians have taken to social media to critize Seyi Makinde, describing his gesture towards the traditional ruler as “misplaced priority”
A Twitter user @darejob wrote, “@seyiamakinde, Wait. Bros. You want to give a traditional ruler 100M to repair his house? You sef see sey yeye dey smell.”
Another Twitter user tweeted,
“Misplaced Priorities, Unaccountability of public funds, Too many problems to be tacked in this govt”.
@Daleadofficial wrote, “100m when the house wasn’t even burned down. This is one of the things we should be talking about soon. #EndSWAT”
