Outgoing Oyo State governor, Abiola Ajimobi has appealed to the governor-elect, Seyi Makinde not to erase the good work he has done behind by the time he assume office on May 29.
In a statement by his Special Adviser on Communication and Strategy, Bolaji Tunji, the governor advised Makinde to desist from making inflammatory statements that could tarnish his image.
“It is disheartening that more than two weeks after the election, the opposition parties, especially the PDP, have carried on as if they are still campaigning.
“Now that elections have been won and lost, there should be an end to acrimonious and incendiary comments. Political discussion has moved from the pre-2011 era. Our focus is on politics of issues and development.
“That is what we expect from them, not personal attacks and falsehood-laced statements indicating their unpreparedness for governance.
“I am not unaware that during campaigns, some politicians adopted the campaign of calumny as strategy, believing it would give them undue advantage, but such does not last.
