The Oyo State governor, Abiola Ajimobi has told Governor-elect, Seyi Makinde, to follow the path of peace and encourage the people he will govern.
The Governor urged the new governor-elect to adjust and improve on the things his administration did wrong.
He said: “Even if we have done bad things in some areas, we have done many good things that outweighed those supposed bad things.
“The fact that we lost in the election does not mean we should throw away the baby with the bath water.
“I think there are good things he can learn from us and good things we will be ready to give him to take from. And for the bad ones, let him adjust and improve on them.”
Ajimobi also warned troublemakers to stay away from the state, stressing that the recent havoc caused by some hoodlums in the state would not be condoned.
The governor was reacting to the recent violence in the state which also led to the death of Rep. Temitope Olatoye (ADP-Akinyele/Lagelu).
Ajimobi said this when he spoke to newsmen in his office on Monday night.
He said: “This administration’s tenure ends on May 29. Between now and that time, we will ensure peace and tranquility which is the hallmark of our administration.
“It was eight years of peace, security, safety and development. We won’t allow Oyo State return to the days of brigandage. This is antithetical to development.
