Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State says his victory at the Supreme Court will enable his administration to focus more on initiating people-oriented projects.

A statement issued on Wednesday in Ibadan by Mr Yomi Layinka, his Special Adviser on Communication and Strategy, quoted the governor as saying that “now that the distractions are out of the way, the good works will continue in earnest.’’

" I thank the people of the state for their support and resilience over the years and I promise to redouble my efforts at taking the state to greater height," he added.

The governor dedicated the verdict at the Supreme Court, which affirmed him the winner of the April 23, 2015 governorship poll, to God and the good people of the state.

The News Agency of Nigeria(NAN) reports that former Gov. Rasheed Ladoja and the Accord Party governorship candidate in the election had approached the court to stop Ajimobi from being declared winner of the election.

Ajimobi also said: “Although all men and women of goodwill pleaded with the Ladoja camp to accept defeat and cooperate with the winner in the onerous task of rebuilding the legacies of our heroes past, they bluntly refused.

“Although contestants from other parties quickly conceded defeat and indeed proceeded to congratulate the winner having seen the trend of the results.

"Ladoja and his party refused to play the gallant losers, preferring instead to fight to the finish.

" We were never bothered knowing full well that the people had spoken so clearly.

"They unmistakably on that historic April day returned their vote of confidence for the candidate in whom they were well pleased.

“I'm using this opportunity to call on my brother, Ladoja, and others still in the opposition to join hands with us to take our state to another level that will be different from a village.

" I thank the people of Oyo State for their steadfastness. It’s victory for all of us," he said.
