Ajimobi Produced Oyo-2050 Roadmap Before Leaving Office– Hon Adisa

Honourable Seyi Adisa, a member of the Oyo State House of Assembly, has disclosed that the late former Governor Abiola Ajimobi produced a developmental roadmap, tagged “Oyo 2050”, for the infrastructural and economic development of the state before leaving office in 2019.

The lawmaker, who represents Afijio State Constituency, also described the late Ajimobi as a passionate bridge builder and courageous leader who had the interest of the state at heart.

Honourable Adisa said these while speaking recently on a weekly radio programme, ‘Ayekooto on Radio’ anchored by Olayinka Agboola.


He said: “He [Ajimobi] was passionate to see Ibadan in particular among the league of developed cities of the world. I can say it anywhere that I have never seen anyone who is more passionate about Oyo State than Ajimobi.

“I can remember what happened during one of our trips outside Nigeria. We were in Dubai on this day I am talking about. We were in a car from the airport and he looked at the sprawling beauty of the city.

“Unconsciously, he started talking to himself saying ‘we want to rebuild Oyo state, but some distractors are opposing us, and we will not also permit them too.”

Speaking on his sojourn in the world of politics the lawyer-turned-politician said: “I had an urge that God was calling me into politics earlier in my life.

“While in college I choose politics and I discovered that most of the political bigwigs studied Law and because of the versatile nature of the profession, I decided to study Law and there is no regret studying it.

“I got a call to serve as Ajimobi’s Principal Private Secretary and I worked with him for eight years- it was an opportunity for me to learn on the job.

“In 2018, I had a conversation with him that I wanted to contest as a legislator and he was surprised but also very pleased. He supported my ambition while encouraging me to adapt to any changing situation I find myself.”

On his brand of politics, Honourable Adisa enthused: “My own style of politics is a type that deploys political will to encourage development.”

He further revealed that the greatest problem confronting the society is underdevelopment, but added that politics is one of the platforms that can be used to solve the big problem of underdevelopment.
