Ibadan, the Oyo State capital was agog Friday, as Governor Abiola Ajimobi took the oath of office administered on him by the Chief Judge of the state, Munta Ladapo Abimbola, as the first civilian governor to take it a second time.

The governor, who won the election on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for a second term, for the first time in the history of the state, used the occasion to extend hand of fellowship to his opponents in the last election promising that he would governor of the entire state.

Speaking at the event held at the Obafemi Awolowo Stadium, Oke-Ado,  Governor Ajimobi assured: “I will be the governor of all, including my detractors and supporters.”

He declared that his second-term would be used to consolidate on the first four years, as well as infrastructural, human capital development and an all inclusive government.

Taking the oath of office alongside his Deputy, Moses Alake Adeyemo, he maintained in his inaugural speech that apart from being guided by the manifesto of his party, the APC, the policy thrust of his administration in the next four years would be to consolidate on the existing peace and security, build an all inclusive government, infrastructural development and urban renewal initiative that would further enhance the development of the state.

The governor who reeled out his achievements in the last tour years promised to do more for the people, saying, “development of human capital starts with structured information which is based on a sound education, knowledge, ability and capability, as well as possibility to earn a living which results in empowerment.”
