Oyo state governor Abiola Ajimobi has stated that he will not allow those who abuse or disrespect traditional rulers and people of other geopolitical zones to succeed him in 2019.
He made this known during a town Hall meeting and empowerment program organized by Senator Abdulfatai Buhari, at the Permanent orientation camp of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).
The governor said he will not fold his hands to allow those who abuse him and the people of Ibadan and other geopolitical zones in the state to succeed him.
Ajimobi reassured the people of Oke-Ogun of his support to produce the next governor of the state.
He also urged the people of the area to call their sons who are contesting to a meeting to produce the best among themselves, warning that such candidate must not be someone who abuses and disrespects traditional rulers and people of the other zones.
Ajimobi said: “An abuser can’t succeed me in Oyo state. I love Oke-Ogun people, they are very reliable people, they are very grateful people but abuser can’t succeed me. If we want to support the people of Oke-Ogun, let them call themselves and present the best but my abuser can’t become governor.
“Don’t abuse Ibadan, don’t present someone who will abuse. Like I use to sing, those who are abusing us, let them continue to abuse us, and those who are loving us, let them continue to love us, it is only those whose life is doomed that will be looking for supporters. Remember campaign will soon start, ‘we are talkers and we will talk’.”
