The Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Samuel Odulana, has congratulated Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State on his re-election during the just concluded governorship election.
A statement issued by the Olubadan’s Personal Assistant, Chief Isiaka Akinpeli, in Ibadan on Tuesday, quoted the monarch as giving his royal blessings to Ajimobi for a successful second-term stay in office.
The Olubadan also expressed delight at the peaceful conduct of the election.
He said “I pray for God’s guidance and protection throughout his tenure as governor of the state. We are also delighted that the election was largely peaceful, indicating that the people are making impressive strides in our democratic journey.
“I also commend the people for exercising their civic responsibility in a peaceful and orderly manner”.
The Olubadan, however, urged the governor to be magnanimous in victory by extending a hand of love and friendship to his opponents so that peace would continue to reign in the state.
“Ajimobi must use the opportunity of his re-election to increase the tempo of development in Ibadanland and the state in general.
“I call on other candidates to eschew bitterness and embrace peace, love and conduct themselves within the ambit of the law at all times”, he stressed.
