Citing his own experience, Governor Ajimobi said “I had made several attempts to become the governor of Oyo State. The first time, I contested and won but I was denied the victory. I did not give up. After several prayers and fasting, I tried again and won, and thus became the governor''.

The governor, who said that his mission in governance was to ensure the rapid development of the state and to better the lots of the people, added that he would remain resolute in achieving the aim.

While attributing the various achievements of his administration to the support and prayers of religions leaders in the state, he appealed to them not to relent in their prayers for the success of his administration.

In his remarks, the Presiding Bishop of Christ Life Church, Bishop Francis Wale Oke commended Governor Ajimobi for the prevailing peace in the state and the various development projects so far executed by his government.

'There is no state as peaceful as Oyo under the leadership of Governor Ajimobi in Nigeriatoday. There is peaceful co-existence among all the people and you can see developments manifesting in every nook and cranny of state. This is commendable,'' Bishop Oke remarked.
