Oyo State Governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, has vowed to sustain his administration’s developmental strides until May 28 when his tenure would end.
Speaking at the inauguration of 33 excavators purchased to boost agriculture, rescue and safety in the state, the governor called on the civil servants and traditional rulers in the state to cooperate and support the incoming administration in the same way they did for his administration, in the larger interest of the state.
Ajimobi said it was only when everybody was on the same page that the developmental strides of his administration could be sustained by his successor, whom he said would also be held accountable to his electioneering promises.
He explained that the inaugurated 33 excavators would not only boost agricultural production, but also be useful for safety and rescue operations, as well as urban renewal across the 33 local government areas and 35 local council development areas.
The governor said the purchase of the equipment was to further reinforce his earlier stance that he would sustain the administration’s developmental strides until May 28 when his tenure would end.
The governor explained that it was one of the excavators that was deployed for rescue operations during the recent building collapse in Molete Area of Ibadan, which made it possible to bring out all those trapped in the rubble alive.
The 33 excavators are fresh additions to the first batch of the earth-moving equipment procured by the Ajimobi’s administration, with 320 tractors and 30 mini trucks distributed to 20 agrarian Local Government Areas in 2012.
The governor said, “I make bold to say that this is the first administration in the history of this state that will invest so heavily in the agricultural sector. The 33 excavators we are inaugurating today is another unprecedented feat.’’
