Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi, has advised the Governor-elect, Mr Seyi Makinde, to focus on developmental issues instead of his campaign of calumny against his person, family and administration.
He said Makinde’s move was aimed at tarnishing his image and rubbishing his “eight-year selfless service” to the state.
The governor’s position was contained in a statement by his Special Adviser, Communication and Strategy, Mr Bolaji Tunji, on Tuesday.
He said the Peoples Democratic Party ought to start talking about its plans for the state and how to build on the foundation laid by his administration instead of carrying on with its acrimonious campaign.
Ajimobi said he was appalled by the unprovoked media attacks by opposition parties, especially sympathisers of the PDP and its governorship candidate, who he said were still practising politics of bitterness.
