Renowned Islamic Preacher, Sheikh Muhydeen Ajani Bello on Wednesday said nothing has changed in Oyo State since the late Governor Abiola Ajimobi left office in May 2019.
Sheikh Bello stated this while speaking as the guest lecturer at the maiden annual Ishaq Abiola Ajimobi memorial Ramadan lecture with the topic “Nothing goes without reward from Almighty Allah”, held at the Ishaq Abiola Ajimobi Central mosque, Oke Bola in Ibadan.
He pointed out that there was no doubt in the fact that Oyo state throughout the 8 years tenure of late Governor Abiola Ajimobi witnessed peace unlike the present situation in and across the state.
” We can all see for ourselves that nothing has changed in Oyo state, Nothing has changed in Ibadan. We cannot move freely anymore. People should fear God and obey the prophet. I am now telling you that it is what we do that people will say about us. Ajimobi build good legacies”, he said.
Stressing that it was unfortunate that people can no longer move freely in Oyo state and in Ibadan in particular due to security breaches, Sheikh Bello maintained that most of the projects of the present administration in the state were either done or initiated by late Senator Ajimobi.
Eulogising the late Senator Ajimobi for his commitment to Oyo state development, Sheikh Bello noted that the present government in the state is still claiming to be planning its own programme, saying, ” theyare still planning, we have gone back to the era of planning. We cannot forget Lam Adesina and Ajimobi who have died”
Chairman of the occasion and the Asiwaju Adini of Oyo State, Alhaji Mutiu Oladejo in his remarks stated that the vacuum left behind as a result of Senator Ajimobi’s death has not been filled by anyone.
The Asiwaju Adini while tasking Muslims to always prepare for death said, the late former governor left ” legacies in all areas of human endeavours. We should all remember to prepare for our death. The vacuum left behind as a result of the death of the former Governor has not been filled.
“Let us join hands with our leaders to move the state forward. I urged all youths to join hands with our leaders to move the state forward.”
