Oyo State governor, Abiola Ajimobi, has cried out that the state was a difficult one to govern, saying that the state harbours the “largest party of lies” and is a place where you help one person and the remaining nine are offended.
Governor Ajimobi made this known during an inter-religious prayer session held to usher in Year 2013 at the Governor’s Office Car Park, Secretariat, Ibadan. According to him, “It is difficult for someone to rule this state. It is in Oyo State that you have the largest party of lies. No matter how good you are, you will have enemies and friends.”
Noting that as nobody is perfect, his government has its own faults, the governor insists that all of them are done in good faith. The prayer, which was well attended by politicians, civil servants, and many other notable people in the state, also served as a beacon of hope for workers as the governor repeatedly said that the New Year would be a “payback year” for the workers.
He commended them for absorbing all the challenges, pressures and “tsunami of change” that his administration introduced to make them better.
