Like Ambode, Ajimobi and Amosu also shun successors’ inauguration

Abiola Ajimobi was absent as Seyi Makinde got sworn-in in Oyo State. The same thing happened in Ogun

Like Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos, the outgoing governors of Oyo and Ogun states, Abiola Ajimobi and Ibikunle Amosu have respectively shunned the swearing-in and inauguration of their successors.

In Abeokuta, Dapo Abiodun was left at the mercy of the Chief Judge of the state who sworn him in after he took his oath of office. The situation was not different at the Obafemi Awolowo Liberty Stadium where outgoing Abiola Ajimobi was no where to be found as Seyi Makinde took charge as the new state executive.

Reports also claim Senator Ajimobi was sighted at  the Eagle Square where President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo took their oath of office. BlackBox Nigeria however couldn’t verify this claim as at the time of publishing this report.

In Ogun State, there has been a thug of war between the outgoing governor who is also a Senator-Elect and his successor, Dapo Abiodun. On Tuesday when the now outgone governor officially handed over the government to the new administration, Dapo Abiodun was conveniently absent but was represented by his deputy, Engineer Noimot Oyedele-Salako. Eventually when the handing over ceremony progressed late afternoon, Amosun also refused to handle the affairs himself. In his stead, the Secretary to the State Government, Barr. Taiwo Adeoluwa handed over to Engineer Oyedele-Salako.

As Prince Dapo Abiodun takes over the Oke-Mosan Governor’s office, it is expected that he would mend fences with his predecessor who is headed for the senate to ensure that the ruling APC doesn’t continue in it disjointed form. 

Seyi Makinde and Abiola Ajimobi might however not have any reason to mend fences as they belong to different political parties.
