Ajimobi and Yinka Ayefele

The Governor of Oyo State, Abiola Ajimobi, has stated that curses can’t affect him because he is doing the right thing.

The governor made the statement while speaking with newsmen after the Eid el-Kabir celebration at Agodi Eid Ground.

He was reacting to a series of backlash and criticisms which had trailed him after the demolition of the N800 million Music House/Fresh FM owned by ace singer, Yinka Ayefele.

Ajimobi said if a person deserves curses and people pray for such an individual, the prayer cannot work for such a person.

However, Ajimobi stressed that he is working for prayers and not curses because he is serving Oyo indigenes wholeheartedly.

“The lesson I learnt from the sojourn in the last seven years that we have been running the government is that one needs to fear God. If one fears God, no matter the curses placed on him, such curse can never have effect on him.

“And if someone does what deserve curses and people pray for such an individual, the prayer cannot work for such a person. For me, no matter the curses, it can never affect me because I know I’m working for prayers and not curses.

“I’m serving the people wholeheartedly and I’m happy that God will give us success, Ajimobi said.

The governor further said that he does not prosecute people adding that he will never allow Oyo state to be an animal farm.

“I never persecute people, but follow the law and stick to it. Those who say you are wrong today, tomorrow they will see. As a leader, anytime you want to make a change, some people, enlightened, unenlightened, ignorant, mischievous will play politics with it. But, a good leader must have the courage to go ahead.

“If you remember the great Prophet Mohammed, when he was talking about the Almighty God to the people, they sent him away from his hometown.

“So, anytime we, as leaders, heads of government are trying to make changes, people talk, but we forge ahead, no matter what they say.

“We will never allow this state to become a banana state. We will not allow it to be an animal farm.

“If you see any state that is doing well in the world, it is that they have rule of law and they obey them. Everybody must obey the law. So, we thank God that we succeeded because we have adhered to law and order, “Ajimobi said.
