Ajimobi Assures He Won’t Impose Anyone On Oyo Residents



Gov. Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo state.

Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State has assured residents of the state that he will not impose anyone as the next governor ahead of the 2019 general elections.

The governor made this known during the inauguration of Oyo State Market Leaders Council in Ibadan.

He, however, disclosed that his concern was to have a successor who will build on the feats recorded by his administration in the areas of peace, security, social and physical infrastructure, trade and investment among others.

Ajimobi said: “This administration still has till May 2019. However, in politics, we have just about a year to go.

“This means that by this December, we will be in the thick of politics and would have begun campaigning for votes for my successor. Though some will say that my concern when I begin canvassing for votes for a successor is that I want to impose someone who will be my puppet upon the people. But the truth is whether you impose or not, that person, may after a while, no more do one’s bidding.

“What I am concerned about is having a successor who will do well for the state. Even a child, at some point, may not always take heed to his or her parents. Moreover, when the child gets married, he or she may begin to take heed to only the stance of his or her hubby.

“We have done well and should pray that whoever emerges next governor will continue to promote trade and investment, peace and security, social and physical infrastructure.”
