Governor Abiola Ajimobi on Monday declared that all those presently antagonizing him and his administration are “facebook, newspapers and television” politicians
The governor said this in Ibadan while inaugurating the newly elected 33 Local Government and ,the 35 Local Council Development Areas (LCDA) Chairmen that won in the last Saturday council polls in the state.
Apparently referring to members of the APC splinter group, the Unity Forum, Governor Ajimobi declared that the successful conduct of the local government elections has further shamed his political detractors especially those saying the council polls will never hold.
The governor emphasized that there is no doubt in the fact that the successful conduct of the local government election has proved again that his adminstration is loved by the people of the state.
“Politics is full of disagreement but you must be humble in your victory. We are not politicians on pages of newspapers, we are not politicians on TV. All those who are fighting us, there is no one who who has not benefited from this adminstration. If they say they are former this, former that, they got the title from this present government. And you will remember that there is no battle, there is no war that we have not won” he said
Governor Ajimobi added that the time has come for all members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo state to cooperate with his adminstration in repositioning the state. adding
“,similarly, the successful conduct of the local government election was free and fair and that has demonstrated the belief of the people in this administration.”
He then advised the newly elected Chairmen to always see their election as call to service and not to amass wealth, saying, ” your
victory at the election should be seen and understood as a great call to service,”
“. Your leadership must also reflect the people oriented policies of our administration. You must also know that your overwhelming votes is a testimony of our acceptance by the people. For those ,,that did not partake in the election, we are not perturbed. Your victory has placed a great task on your shoulder to serve humanity. Let me also use this opportunity to appeal to all members and others to support this adminstration in repositioning Oyo State. “
