The governor-elect noted that while he’s not interested in time-wasting probe, he would set a dateline upon all contracts awarded and payments made under suspicious circumstances by the current administration.

“The governor-elect may be forced to open the books if the aim is to rush money out through foul means before May 29 and leave the state in further financial crisis,” the statement read.

According to Makinde, “cases of unscheduled recruitments and appointments, including back-dated ones, have also been brought before him.

“Government will not hesi”tate to reverse any such move with consequences on those found to have committed infractions of the civil service guidelines.”
