In Oyo: Ex-governor Ajimobi reveals those behind missing govt vehicles, properties

Ex-Oyo Governor Abiola Ajimobi has urged his successor in office, Governor Seyi Makinde to beam his searchlight on the activities of civil servants and those working in government instead of accusing his officials of carting government property after the expiration of his tenure.

Ajimobi said the advice became imperative on the repeated claims of the present administration and its efforts at tarnishing his (Ajimobi’s) image and that of his aides on the missing property, especially vehicles.

The former Governor spoke on Sunday while addressing journalists in his Oluyole, Ibadan residence after observing the Eid-el-Kabir prayer at the Ansar-Ur-Deen prayer ground, Liberty Area, Oke Ado, area of the capital city.

According to him, he learnt that government workers took advantage of his predecessor, Christopher Alao-Akala’s leaving the government house few days before the legitimate expiration of his term as a governor to loot and plunder the entire official government residence.

Ajimobi was flanked by his wife, Mrs Florence Ajimobi, the APC governorship candidate in the 2019 election, Mr Adebayo Adelabu, the APC state secretary, Mr Mojeed Olaoya, embattled chairmen under the aegis of Association of Local Governments of Nigerian (ALGON) who were led by the Chairman, Mr Ayodeji Abass-Aleshinloye, former Media Adviser, Mr Bolaji Tunji among other aides, party chieftains and members.

Asked if he had any regrets after leaving office, the former Senator said his only regret was that he tried to be perfect in an imperfect world but that if given the chance again to govern, he would take the same policies decisions he took again and again.

The former governor also used the opportunity of the season to call on all aggrieved members of the party to return and start the rebuilding ahead of the next election, noting that although some of those who left had genuine reasons, many others left the party for selfish reasons.

He, however solicited for support for the Makinde led-government, promising to give him any kind of support anytime to succeed (Dailypost)
