As Gov. Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State clocks 67, the state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) says he is a priceless gift to Yorubaland.

The party gave the description in a statement signed by Mr Olawale Sadare, its  Director of Publicity and Strategy, and made available to newsmen in Ibadan on Thursday.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Ajimobi will be 67 on Friday, Dec. 16.

The party called for support and prayers for the governor in his quest to take the state to an enviable height.

It said that Ajimobi ranked among the best in terms of managerial acumen, leadership skill, and passion for excellence, which distinguished him as an ideal leader.

For a governor who assumed office at a critical period in the life of a state like Oyo and turned things round with his popular restoration, transformation and repositioning mantra, coming into office could not have been accidental.

“This apparently accounts for the unprecedented realisation of second term in office and subsequent continuation of his good work across the state.

“Having recorded many feats in less than six years in office, Ajimobi has not left anyone in doubt of his passion to rewrite the history and position the state in its Pacessetter status,” it stated.

The party said that Ajimobi occupied an enviable position in the Nigerian Governors’ Forum, being the leader of the South West Governors’ Forum.

We can only pray that Almighty God grant our dear leader many more years of sound health and mind to enable him fulfill all his tasks to humanity as he constantly demonstrates the zeal to serve us better,” it said.

The party stated that it was of the strong belief that the current economic crisis, which had badly affected regular payment of workers’ salaries and pensions, would soon become a thing of the past.

It said that the country and Oyo State in particular would be restored to the era of abundance and productivity.

Our hope is a product of various concerted efforts being put in place by Ajimobi to salvage the situation, and in no time, the days of glory shall be back,” the party said.
