We Didn’t Disobey Court Order, Cash Swap Policy Disrupted Further Payment — Oyo Govt Reacts to Court Order

The Attorney General of the State and Commissioner for Justice, Prof. Oyelowo Oyewo, SAN, has confirmed that the Oyo State Government has made the payment of 1.5biillion naira to ex local government bosses.

Oyewo, who addressed the issue of garnishee order of the court on its Local Government accounts, said: “The state is not in disobedience of the court order.

“Out of N4.2b, we have paid N1.5bn and we were also in the process of paying but because of the cash swap policy, that disrupted our plans, so, the finances were disrupted and we could not.

“We are not in disobedience of the court and we are going to go to the court, and also we observed that the Federal Capital Territory does not have jurisdiction on that matter, but these are matters that will be brought before the court.

“Oyo State is amenable to instalment payment and even the judgements that were given during Ajimobi’s administration, we are still paying them. The obligation that the payment has is spread across the spectrum.

“At the end of the day, the court will give a hearing and we are amenable to pay in instalments and we are still going to go to court and quash the order,” he added.
