Ajimobi calls for unity as new HoS takes oath

Oyo State Governor Abiola Ajimobi yesterday urged the residents to stop promoting division and disunity in the name of institutions, regions or socio-cultural zones.

The governor spoke in Ibadan, the state capital, at the swearing-in of a new Head of Service (HoS), Mrs Hannah Ogunesan.

The swearing-in was the second official function the governor performed at the same venue, having earlier inducted the first President of the state’s Customary Court of Appeal, Justice Solomon Akinteye.

Ajimobi noted that the location of any institution or government structure should not be seen as making it to belong to the region but the entire state.

Oyo State is politically divided into Ibadan, Oyo, Oke Ogun, Ibarapa and Ogbomosho extractions and each zone has many local government areas.

The new HoS hails from Oke Ogun region of the state.

The governor said: “The Head of Service we are choosing today is the HoS of Oyo State and not for Oke Ogun region. So, please, let that be seen and be known. Just like I tell all my brothers from Ogbomosho, Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) is not for Ogbomosho; it is for Oyo State and for all of us.

“Let us try and unite ourselves under all institutions created to unite us. Let’s stop dividing ourselves on the basis of region or zones or on structures located in the regions. All we have been doing in terms of political appointments across the regions is in the interest of the state.”

Mrs Ogunesan is the second to be sworn in under the Ajimobi administration, following the voluntary retirement of the former HoS, Soji Eniade, who the governor had also appointed as an Executive Assistance.
