- Senator Abiola Ajimobi says he wishes his successor, Seyi Makinde of Oyo, success as he takes over the saddle of leadership in the state
- Ajimobi notes that his administration built a sound foundation for his successor to latch on for success
- The former governor expresses his readiness to support the administration of Makinde in the interest of the state
Senator Abiola Ajimobi, immediate past governor of Oyo state, has said his administration built a solid foundation for the government now headed by Seyi Makinde to succeed in office.
Ajimobi, who is currently facing a level of probe, also said he wished Makinde success as he leads the state in the next four years.
The Nation reports that the former governor said this while speaking with journalists during the Sallah holiday.
According to him, nobody would have anything to gain if the current administration failed.
“I think Governor Seyi Makinde is lucky because we have a very good structure in terms of security. He should just leverage on it and I want to advise that there are many good things that we have done, let him leverage on them. Anything that we have done that is not good, let him repair and that is life. Nobody is perfect. Only God is perfect.
“In fact people believe that some of the imperfections of God came out of the evil men that we see. Some even ask why God did not create all of us to be good. They ask why God allows some evil men to thrive," Ajimobi said.
He prayed for the governor to succeed adding that he was ready to support his successor because in helping Makinde, he believes he would be helping himself and the state.
“There are many things we have done very well. No governor has ever done as much as we have done. But it doesn’t mean we won’t make mistakes.
“As a statesman, you can’t wish your state or country to be stagnated or retrogress. You can only wish to see continuous progress. That’s how the society gets better. It is not about one person or personal interest.
“Every good leader is interested in seeing a better society where his people enjoy opportunities to be the best they can,” he said.
