Gov. Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State has advised the Ogun governor-elect, Mr Dapo Abiodun, to prioritise the welfare of the people of his state as compensation for their overwhelming support.

A statement by Ajimobi’s spokesman, Bolaji Tunji, said the governor gave the advice when Abiodun visited the Oyo State governor in Ibadan on Sunday.

Ajimobi thanked the people of Ogun for electing Abiodun, urging the governor-elect to see his election as a rare opportunity to serve his people and better their lot.

The governor, who congratulated Abiodun, described him as gentle, kind-hearted and an epitome of humility.

“When my brother, Dapo Abiodun, intimated me of his intention to contest for the Ogun governorship election, I told him that he should go ahead and that he will be victorious by the grace of God.

“I, therefore, thank God that today he has become the governor-elect of Ogun. I have every cause to glorify God on his behalf.

“In the affairs of men, God has always been present. It is this divine presence that has brought him this victory.

“Dapo is gentle, kind-hearted and an epitome of humility. All these he has demonstrated here today through this visit.

“While I’m congratulating you on this victory, let me state that an opportunity to serve is an opportunity to be Godly.

“You must do everything humanly possible to prioritise the welfare of your people as a compensation for the overwhelming support they gave you to emerge governor-elect,” he said.

Ajimobi urged Abiodun to be ready and prepared to step on toes towards recording meaningful achievements as well as making the desired change during his tenure.

“If you want to be a good leader and make a change, you must be ready and prepared to step on toes. When you step on toes, the toes will kick you back. Just forge ahead.

“If you really want to make a change, study your environment; have courage, not only to envision but also to make a difference.

“Put Godliness above all things and ensure that whatever you do is in the best interest of the people.
