The victory of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the last governorship election in Oyo State as represented by the incumbent Governor Abiola Ajimobi has been attributed to his first term in office which he used to serve the people and not himself.
This was the submission of the Royal Ambassador to the Alaafin of Oyo, Aare Ayandotun Ayanlakin, during an interaction with newsmen in Ibadan.
Ayanlakin recalled that he had over a year ago predicted that Ajimobi would win re-election.
Ayanlakin was happy that the prediction he made over a year ago that Ajimobi would win the 2015 governorship election had come pass.
He listed some of the administration’s achievements as the construction of the Mokola flyover in Ibadan, beautification of the environment, restoration of peace, construction of roads, disbursement of N300 million loan to traders, the timely payment of workers’ salary and 13th month salary for the third year running, among others as some of the things that endeared the re-elected Governor to the people of the state.
“I agree that there is a saying that the people of Oyo State don’t serve one Governor twice, but the saying arose because those who have been governing Oyo State, especially during the current republic, until Ajimobi came on board, have not been serving the people.
