Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi, on Friday swore to oath for a second term in office with a pledge to be governor for all citizens and residents irrespective of their interests and affiliations.

The governor gave the assurance while delivering his inauguration address after he was sworn in with his deputy, Chief Moses Alake-Adeyemo, at the Obafemi Awolowo Stadium, Ibadan, the state capital.

The inauguration ceremony was low-key, reflecting the economic situation in the country.

Ajimobi, who arrived the stadium in company of his ‎family members at about 11:36am, took his oath at 12:33pm. The oath was administered by the state’s Chief Judge, Hon. Justice Ladipo Abimbola.

While expressing gratitude to God and voters for giving him the opportunity to be the first governor to take the oath twice, Ajimobi said his victory was a call to re- dedicate himself to the good people of the state.

His words: “I am eternally grateful that you rose above the massive hate and smear campaigns designed to demonize our huge sacrifices and achievements of the past four years. You cared not for the tale that no governor was ever re-elected in our state. You would not allow that past history to determine your approaching future.

“You chose not to succumb to fear or fable. You voted as your conscience and beliefs led you. You used your votes to break the alleged jinx that hovered over our politics. We clearly heard you when you said that, like every human being created by the Most High God, our human limitations as individuals and as an administration were inconsequential, placed side by side our monumental commitment and passion to make a difference in Oyo State. We heard you clearly.

“Since 1976 when our state was created, seven of us have stood before you to take the gubernatorial oath, 26 in all have administered our state, either as the defunct Western Region or its eventual reincarnation as Oyo State. The Almighty, in His wondrous ways, ably assisted by the audacity of your votes, has made me the only of those numerous men to take the gubernatorial oath a second time.”
