Immediate Past Governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi has urged at home and in the diaspora to keep hope alive and continue to support the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He gave this charge yesterday in a new year message issued by his Spokesman, Mr Bolaji Tunji.
The former governor said Nigerians should continue to place their trust in the administration of President Buhari and his team as they are capable of ensuring the remarkable economic turn around that all Nigerians envisage.
Senator Ajimobi noted that the administration has set the tone for the revamping of the socio-economic situation in the country through policies and projects embarked upon at the inception of the administration.
“ I want to assure all Nigerians that the love of the nation burns brightly in the heart of the President and he is determined to ensure that legacies that would stand the test timtime are emplaced in the country.”
“ We have seen some of the giant strides of the administration in areas of infrastructure especially transportation and power. Roads are being constructed across the country, rail lines are also being laid. These are ways of further opening up the economy. The administration however needs our support. As a great leader, it is about taking the people to where they ought to be and not where they want to be, it may look difficult now but we shall all smile at the end of the day”.
The former governor also used the occasion to thank the APC fold at the State level for their patience and support. “Our reconciliation is still on going and positive steps have been made. We should eschew the bitterness of the past and forgive.”
Senator Ajimobi further reiterated his commitment and support for the party noting that as humans we are bound to offend one another. “ Some people offended me and I offended some people too. But in the spirit of true reconciliation, we should forgive one another and allow the past to end with 2019. Let us chat a new course of love and reconciliation for ourselves and the party in 2020”. All our actions and activities should be geared towards strengthening our party”, he said
