Oyo State governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi has said that only God and the people of the state will determine the person who will succeed him among the 34 aspirants currently jostling to occupy the coveted office in 2019.
The governor clarified this during the Democracy Day 2017 media interactive session organized by the Ibadan Zonal Station of the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria, at its Zonal headquarters, Dugbe in Ibadan on Wednesday.
The forum provided the governor with a platform to shed lights on his achievement in education, environment, health, housing, road construction and other sectors since coming on board in 2011.
The governor’s clarification was in reference to media reports quoting him to have said that he would name his successor by May next year.
Ajimobi said: “Only God ordains or dethrones kings. Only God and the good people of Oyo State will determine my successor. But I’m sure that our people will not allow the state to fall into the hands of charlatans or professional politicians who will slow down our progress”.
