A popular Islamic Cleric, Sheikh Muyideen Ajani Bello has decried the spate of insecurity in the state adding that people cannot move freely anymore.
Bello made this disclosure on Wednesday while delivering a sermon at the maiden annual Ishaq Abiola Ajimobi memorial Ramadan lecture held in Ibadan, the state capital.
Bello who spoke as a guest lecturer at the event on the topic “Nothing goes without reward from Almighty Allah”, said that nothing has changed since the former Governor left the office.
Bello noted that most of the projects of the current government in the state were started by Ajimobi.
He added that the current government in the state is still claiming to be planning his own programs.
His words, “Nothing has changed in Ibadan. We cannot move freely anymore. People should fear God and obey the prophet. I am now telling you that it is what we do that people will say about us. Ajimobi built good legacies.
“They are still planning, we have gone back to the era of planning. We cannot forget Lam Adesina and Ajimobi who have died”
Chairman of the occasion who is also the Asiwaju Adini of Oyo State, Alhaji Mutiu Oladejo, earlier in his welcome address, noted that the vacuum left behind as a result of Ajimobi’s death has not been filled by anyone.
Oladejo urged Muslims to always prepare for the death.
“He has legacies in all areas of human endeavours. We should all remember to prepare for our death. The vacuum left behind as a result of the death of the former Governor has not been filled.
“Let us join hands with our leaders to move the state forward. I urged all youths to join hands with our leaders to move the state forward.”
The Ramadan lecture was organized by family, friends and associates of the immediate past Governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi who died last year.
