“Ajimobi was an architect of a new order, an erudite leader, a consummate politician who served the pacesetter state with utmost dedication, love and focus to make Oyo State greater than he met it for his eight years of remarkable achievements and giant stride.

The former ALGON chairman advised Gov. Makinde and the good people of Oyo state to take Senator Ajimobi’s giant stride while in office as the benchmark of governance which governors must meet or surpass before they can be described as being successful in office for the pacesetter state to move higher than they met it.
