The immediate past governor of Oyo State, Abiola Ajimobi, has appealed to people of the state for his misdeeds in office as executive governor
Ajimobi added that people of the state must learn to forgive him for any foul committed in office, especially in his utterances, adding that those were the things that made him who he is and different from every other person.
Ajimobi who spoke on Sunday in Ibadan House, Oke Aremo, Ibadan, during a luncheon held in his honour by the Ibadan Elders’ Forum, advised governor Seyi Makinde to face governance instead of trying to discredit him, adding that he should correct the perceived areas he (Ajimobi) might have done badly and build on the success of his eight years’ administration.
Ajimobi noted that it was his prayers that Makinde succeeds in office, noting that if the governor succeeds, he would have taken the state higher than he met it, urging him not to try to be perfect.
He said: “My admonition is that the new government succeeds. It is in our best interest that he succeeds. If he succeeds, he would have taken Oyo state higher than he met it.
“I am advising him that he should not try to be perfect but he must build on our successes. He must build and not demolish. He must build and not destroy. We have raised the bar of governance in this state and can’t afford to see it go down again.
“We must not return to the days of brigandage and days of locust, where chaos and disorder was the norm in Ibadan. Let him face the job and not look at mundane issues. There was a time I heard he said our government officials took cars away. Which vehicles is he talking about among all the issues on ground in the state?”
