"I also commend the people for exercising their civic responsibility in a peaceful and orderly manner.”

The monarch, however, urged Ajimobi to be magnanimous in victory by extending hands of love and friendship to his competitors in the race so that peace would continue to reign in the state.

"Ajimobi must use the opportunity of his re-election to increase the tempo of development in Ibadanland and the state in general.
