The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi has praised Gov. Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State for the things he has achieved during his 8 years in power.
The monarch spoke today at the inauguration of some projects in Oyo.
His words, “Your Excellency, you will be leaving in few days from now. We thank you very much for your immense contribution to the growth and development of the state.
“There is no doubt that you will be missed. You have done so much to be remembered for. Our prayer is that the state continues to have quality leaders like you,”
“When you look at the age of Olubadan, you will appreciate this gesture. He does not have to die before being honored.
“We appreciate the governor for this honour. It is not common for people to be honored this way.
“Not all students remember Awolowo, Bode Thomas and Adegoke Adelabu.
“This is a call to the people that we should do good always and have leaders that will immortalise good people. I pray that we have people like you that will continue this trend,”
Ajimobi himself also said, “This centre has in the last eight years of this administration quadrupled its annual volume of cases handled from its modest numbers of just over 200 cases in all of its first six years from inception.
“It has since been achieving an annual average of 500 to 800 annually from 2012 till date with a consistent achievement of an outstanding resolution success rate of 80 per cent of all matters filed.”
