Oyo State Governor, Ajimobi, 15 Aides, On Olympics Jamboree In London by not2long(m): 12:23am On Jul 30, 2012
A few days after the Oyo State government sent wives of state legislators on a wasteful jamboree to the United Kingdom, the executive arm took its turn today, the governor and about 15 commissioners and assistants jetting out on a parallel $250,000 , publicly-funded trip to the Olympics Games.

SaharaReporters learnt that the pretence of the governor, whose state recently suffered a devastating flood that rendered many citizens homeless, is that his team will be hunting for foreign investors at the Olympics.

In real life, the Oyo state contingent will merely be enjoying the Olympics and shopping in London, SaharaReporters was informed.

The governor is a member of the Action Congress Party of Nigeria (ACN), the leading opposition party in Nigeria, which has a sizable following in the Southwest region. The party is often quick to condemn wasteful spending by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ruling elite but typically ducks when its operatives engage in the same level of criminal conduct.

Only today, the ACN publicity secretary, Lai Mohammed, issued a statement asking PDP chairman Bamanga Tukur to resign from office on account of his son's trial for oil subsidy fund fraud, but the party has failed to prevail on the Speaker of Lagos State House of Assembly, Mr. Ikuforiji, who is standing trial before a federal High Court in Lagos for stealing and laundering N500 million, to resign.

Among others, flood is a perennial problem in Oyo State. In just one instance last year, over 100 people were killed. And a few days ago, a temporary wooden bridge in Apete, Ido Local Government Area, was washed away, cutting off several communities.

Critics say that rather than fix these problems, Ajimobi has chosen to idle away in London and burn valuable development funds.

A Political Science teacher at the University of Ibadan told SaharaReporters that Ajimobi has turned out a huge disappointment to the people of Oyo state and that he would not be surprised if citizens soon start saying they preferred former governor, Alao Akala.

"The expectations that Ajimobi was going to improve on governance in Oyo state have been totally dashed,” he said.

“You hardly can see any presence of governance in the state except in ostentatious lifestyles of government officials and senseless jamborees.

He must have mistaken the shooting event as looting event, hence he wants to represent Nigeria for a sure gold.

Interesting none of the laptop squad are here claiming this news to be false since it is coming from the almighty SaharaReporters. cheesy

This act of financial profligacy on the part of Ajimobi is highly reprehensible, it was this same Governor that ran to seek World Bank assistance and supports after the recent flood that devastated a bridge in Apete and some other parts, yet the State could afford sponsoring unprofitable trips of some jobless housewives and idle Aides to the UK.

By the way, what is with Oyo State governor officials and London?

It is oyo state, they are just naturally stupid. The only governor that had the capacity to do something positive was violently and illegally removed. From Ram Adeshina to Akala to this Ajimobi . Oyo state is full of rascals and corrupt officials.
I was disappointed when I visited Nigeria last year for the first time in 10yrs things had gotten worse rather than better.

What's the matter with this over-celebrating and yet under-achieving governor? angry
Someone needs to put him in check real soon, lest he begins to traverse the path traveled by morally bankrupt characters who steered the ship of state, in recent times.

Ajimobi must simply get to work immediately. As far as I know, he has done nothing of note to improve the lot of Oyo folks. To then be seen spending State funds frivolously is the heights of insensitive leadership. They should read this guy the riot act and make it clear he must start delivering tangible performance or face the backlash from the people in the near future. Ajimobi has sterling credentials on paper and it is very disappointing this has not being matched by solid performance as a Governor.

Breaking LIE's about Gov Abiola AJIMOBI :
I read with so much dismay and disappointment of the fabricated lies on Sahara Reporter about the trip Oyo State Government Official titled Oyo State Governor, Ajimobi, 15 Aides, On Olympics Jamboree In London.
This is blatant and clamant lie from Sahara Reporters.
The true gist however is that the Oyo State Government in-conjunction with the Bank of Industry arranged for a Specialized Exhibition to show case Oyo State Investment Potentials in the area of Agriculture ,Culture ,Tourism and Mining during this season in London and Contrary to the Sahara Reporter story , only 3 of Governor Ajimobi's aide accompanied him to London. His Excellency is expected to have presentation on Investment opportunities in Oyo State Later today in London

Link please. I find it hard to believe a Nigerian governor travelled with only 3aids. What about his PA, press Secretary, body guards, senior special assistants, special advisers, commisioners e.t.c. The story by Sahara seems logical. Sahara does not care if you are Pdp or ACN. They would expose anyone who is not doing well irrespective of his political party. I wonder why he chose the Olympics period to search for investment opportunities though.
