The immediate past Governor of Oyo State, Abiola Ajimobi, has charged his successor, Governor Seyi Makinde to stop chasing him and officials of his administration, as there are more important things to address.
He spoke at a reception organized for him by Ibadan Elders Forum on Saturday where he insisted that his administration had raised the dike of governance in the state and that there should be no retrogression.
In his words “I pray that Makinde succeeds as governor of the state. It is in our interest that he should succeed.
“We have raised the bar of governance in this state and can’t afford to see it go down again.
“I heard them say that members of our cabinet carted away government cars. We have served and left. He should stop looking at mundane issues,” he said.
“He must build and not demolish. He must correct and not destroy. We must not return to the era of brigandage.
“We know the dual carriage roads we built can’t be returned to single lane and the bridges we have constructed cannot be pulled down. We have taken Oyo to greater heights and it must not go down.

“Every journey begins with a step and it ends with a step. We did not achieve perfection but achieved successes,” Ajimobi said.
“We can’t do things the same way; otherwise I will not be me. Whoever I have offended should forgive me, and I have forgiven those who offended me too,” he said.
