Ibadan - Chief Akin Oke, All Progressives Congress (APC) Chairman in Oyo state, said Governor Abiola Ajimobi’s name would be written in gold for being the first governor to be re-elected in the state.
According to Oke, Ajimobi has achieved what no other past governor has done.
He said on Wednesday in Ibadan, that "by winning the just-concluded governorship election in the state, Ajimobi has written his name in gold."
Successive governors in the state spent one term of office, no matter their level of performance.
Oke, who congratulated the governor for the victory, stated that the feat would not have been possible if Ajimobi had not performed well in his first tenure.
"I want to thank God and the people of the state who realised the quality Ajimobi possessed by coming out en masse to vote for him for a second term," he said.

He also said that it was a good thing that through the victory, Oyo state had been linked with the Federal Government that would be controlled by the APC.
According to him, the issue of revenue allocation would no longer be a problem.
Oke, however, said that apart from the federal allocations, Ajimobi's government in the second term would work hard to improve on its internal revenue generation profile.
"Through this improved revenue drive, the APC-controlled government in Oyo state would be able to pursue more people-oriented programmes and policies," he said.
He called on the people of the state to continue to support Ajimobi as they did during the election so that he could continue to deliver dividends of democracy to them.
