The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi, has called on Nigerians not to be unnecessarily apprehensive about the President Muhammadu Buhari (PMB) administration, saying the era of oligarchy and corruption-ridden governance is gone for good.
He made this call after inspecting a mobile hospital van donated by two indigenes of Oyo, Honourable Bode Esuola and his wife, Dr. Anu Esuola, both resident in Maryland, United States of America.
According to Oba Adeyemi, good governance and accountability currently being witnessed in Nigeria are beacons of hope for the people.
“Until recently, lack of transparency, probity, and accountability in governance were major problems we had. But President Buhari’s victory, which was a victory for the people, brought about change in our government”, he said.
The Alaafin noted that changing a government under which the people were unnecessarily and needlessly burdened over the years, peacefully through the ballot box, is a feat worthy of emulation by other countries in the West African sub-region.
“The track record of the president and his commitment to democratic processes give hope that under his leadership, Nigerians will once more feel the impact of good and accountable governance”, he said.
While praying that Allah should guide President Buhari and the people of the country, Oba Adeyemi was of the conviction that the integrity and honesty of the president will see him through the task of repositioning the country and ridding the polity of corruption.
“May Allah guide the president as he uses his wisdom and diligence to carry along all Nigerians, including those who did not vote for him, in order to achieve the common purpose of rebuilding a strong, motivated and united country that will exemplify leadership on the African continent”, the paramount ruler of Oyo Kingdom prayed.
