Opposition plotting to destabilize Oyo state

Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi has accused some members of the opposition of planning to disrupt normal activities in the state. He made the accusation yesterday at the 2014 Eid-El-Moulud lecture organized by the state government at the Remembrance Arcade, Government House, Ibadan. Ajimobi, however, assured residents that his government would not just sit by and allow unscrupulous elements unleash violence and terror on law-abiding citizens. “Whatever it will take, we will not allow anybody, no matter his status in the society, to take Oyo State back to the era of violence. The era has gone for good. What we are doing in Oyo State now is to play politics of development. “Whoever now thinks that the only strategy he can use to get to power through the back door is to cause crises and disaffection in the state should have a re-think, as such a person will be dealt with in accordance with the law,” he said. Speaking further, he reiterated the efforts of his administration towards empowering traders and artisans in the state with a view to improving their economic well-being. He, however, urged the people of the state to get engaged in gainful trade or business that would enhance their chances of benefiting from the interest-free loans currently being given out by government. Also speaking at the event, Kano State Governor, Mallam Rabiu Kwakwanso commended his Oyo State counterpart for his good works in the state. “On my arrival in Ibadan, we missed our way to the Government House, and this made us to move round the city before arriving at this programme. I could see a new fly over, clean environment and the positive effect of your urban renewal programme. “I could also see some projects springing up everywhere around the Ibadan metropolis and I have decided to replicate some of these projects when I get back home. I can see your determination to make Oyo State better and I want to urge you not to relent in your efforts.”
