Oyo State governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, has attributed the unprecedented milestones of his more than seven-year administration to godliness, sincerity of purpose, fearlessness and blessings from God. The governor said this in an interview with journalists shortly after observing the Eid al-Adha prayers at the Eid Prayer Ground, Agodi, Ibadan, yesterday. The prayer was led by the Chief Imam of Ibadanland, Sheikh AbdulGaniy Abubakri; and was attended by Aare Musulumi of Yoruba land, Edo and Delta States, Alhaji Daud Akinola; Seriki Musulumi of Yoruba land, Alhaji Yekini Adeojo; former Senate Leader, Senator Teslim Folarin; and Chairman, Muslim Community of Oyo State, Alhaji Kunle Sanni. The governor said that his administration would continue to adhere strictly to the rule of law and exhibit the fear of God in all its activities, urging the citizens to also reciprocate by being law-abiding and alive to their civic responsibilities. Congratulating Muslims on the occasion of this year’s celebrations, the governor stated that what was being celebrated was godliness and service to humanity. Ajimobi said, “What we are celebrating today is godliness and service to humanity. As the governor, I believe I have served humanity. Those who think we are wrong today will appreciate ustomorrow. We have been able to come this far due to our godliness, fearlessness and sincerity of purpose. “A good leader should not only be able to envision, but must have the courage to implement the vision. A good leader takes his people to where they want to go, but a great leader takes them to where they ought to be, “Experience has shown that anytime a leader or head of government wants to make a change, the enlightened, unenlightened, ignorant and mischievous people will plays politics with it.
