I am not afraid of probe, says Ajimobi

Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State says he is ready for a probe of his administration.

He spoke on Thursday at a Public lecture and Fellowship Investiture organised by Society for Peace Studies and Practice at the Subomi Balogun Conference Centre, University of Ibadan.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the event was attended by members of the State Executive Council and some heads of security agencies.

“We will work till the last day of this administration. We don’t care about what some people are saying all about… As I am talking to you today, this administration still has 18 days and some hours to expire.

“When they get there, let them cancel all the contracts we have signed. Let them investigate us and if we have stolen, they should arrest us,’’ he said.

Ajimobi, who reeled out the achievements of his administration, said they were anchored on a pyramid of development which included restoration, transformation and repositioning.

He said that the pyramid of development gave birth to a new wave of developmental strides in education that led to the establishment of School’s Governing Board among other programmes.

“The SGB model led to a significant improvement in public schools students’ performance in public examinations. Today, we can boast of the best results in WASSCE in the last 18 years,’’ he said.

The governor said that his administration also recorded giant strides in infrastructure, agriculture, health, industrialisation, technology and culture, adding such would make his administration a historical corner piece for future reference in governance.

“We have given our best to the state and we will continue to do this. The feats recorded by our administration placed Oyo as one of the five safest havens of investment in the country.

“We are also the fourth investment-friendly state in Nigeria according to the Nigerian Bureau of Statistics; with a four-star rating for investment friendliness by the Nigerian Export Promotions Commission,” he said.
