Oyo State Governor, Abiola Adeyemi Ajimobi, Thursday urged the Governor-elect of the State, Engr Oluseyi Makinde not to dance to the tune of praise-singers.
He also urged the newly elected governor to leverage on relationships and make use of the services of competent hands to move the state forward.
He gave the pieces of advice when Makinde led his deputy, Engr Rauf Olaniyan and other members of his team on his courtesy visit to the Government House in Ibadan, the state capital.
“You must beware of praise-singers and avoid acrimony. It is also better to leverage on relationships. I know you as a man of peace.
“You have started with a very good spirit. I want you to encourage inclusiveness and accommodate those you know can add value to your government and the state,” he said.
The Governor also assured Makinde of his render to help in moving the state forward.
“It is good that we have moved the state to a civil level. We thank God that the electioneering campaign was devoid of disparaging comments and accusation.
“We have achieved, and may the Almighty God grant you the wisdom to also achieve the best. We want you to leverage on our achievement and improve upon those we are yet to achieve.
“The most paramount thing is to leverage on our achievement and we will support him to achieve. All we want is the development and progress of the state,” he said.
