The outgoing Governor of Oyo State, Abiola Ajimobi has said that his only regret after being in office for eight years was not being allowed to do everything that he wanted to do.

Ajimobi, speaking at the State House Correspondents in Abuja after he paid a ‘thank you’ visit to President Muhammadu Buhari, said the people of the state were not patient and understanding enough, a factor that affected some of the things he wanted to do.

“I think I regret the fact that I have not been able to do everything I wanted to do. I wish our people could be more understanding, could be more patient, but they feel that any time you try to make a change, people resist change even if it is good for them. I wish I had been in politics 20 years ago.”

On why he came to thank Buhari, the governor replied that due to the President’s several financial interventions in form of bailouts, he would exit office without leaving behind any unpaid salaries.

He also admitted that the bailouts helped his administration to complete a number of projects and made the state a lot more peaceful.
