Oyo Govt Releases Video of Gov Ajimobi Pleading with Protesting LAUTECH Students



Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State

Following the release of a video where the Governor of Oyo State, Abiola Ajimobi told protesting students of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) to “go and do (their) worst,” the state government has released a video where the governor pleaded with the students to remain calm as efforts are ongoing to reopen the institution that has been shut for 8 months.

The video was published on Twitter by Babajide Fadoju, the Head of Digital Communications of the state government.

Ajimobi assured the students that he and his Osun state counterpart, Rauf Aregbesola have agreed to release at least N250 million each to solve the problem, adding that they have met with the management of the university.

Ajimobi also told the students that the institution will be reopened before the end of January.

    Proper apology is to return the STOLEN money. All that money he’s used to pay his children’s extravagant weddings and his children flaunting the state’s money while the state is in worse situation. Abisola acting like the conceited entitled spoiled brat that she is. What does she do where she can buy all these designer clothes, shoes/bags and fly to the U.S anyhow. Don’t worry, your judgement is coming.

    You are pleading yet the embezzled money is in hiding. he wrath of God will fall on him, his children and family. All these heartless leaders who continue to steal what is meant to serve the people will never find peace.

    Naija MUST change whether these old leaders like it or not. One day, they will all die and rot in hell.

      Apparently, the same daughter Abisola posted and insulted the students. The balls these politician’s kids have in spite of their parent’s wickedness is baffling. I hope she one day goes through suffering, that’s the quickest way to have some empathy.

    this is just a tip of the iceberg, it’s time for Nigerian youths to get organized under one platform and vote a young person. the tomorrow we have been hearing about is now. let’s get organized before 2019

    WOW!! This is some shit!! This particular video looked like it was pieced together to find good angles where he seemed more empathetic to the student’s situation. How can a man of authority be asking for his constituents to apologize to his bruised ego?!?! Unbelievable! This is irrevocable. The damage is already done. The previous video showed his true color; an uncouth, arrogant leader!

    Dear Mr. Head of Digital Communications & Spokesperson,

    It breaks my heart that all too soon you and your media team can only use another video to explain a governor’s misguided tongue. If you had any inkling as to the first rule of crisis management, then you will know it is not for you to find a version of the truth to prove the innocence of your boss, the governor.

    Rather than try to prove your inability to use social media to your advantage, one would think a statement that addresses the school closure and an apology from your unruly governor, stating that he spoke the way he did as a result of the flaring tempers of the student, you opted to paint the governor as either innocent or well within his rights to utter the nonsense he did.

    If these are the quality of our leaders and elects, what do you expect from the products you churn from our half baked institutions? The governor’s statement was made in bad taste; let him apologize and proffer real actionable solutions to the lingering education crisis in his state. But no, of what concern is his when his kids like many other kids of the ruling class send their kids to the best schools in Europe and America.

    If they aren’t pilfering the future of our generation and using those loot to ensure their kids live the fly life both on and off Instagram.

    God help this country.

    Old thieving men who should be tied to the stakes and shot to death like the common criminals they are.

    Please, just don’t start me up with an attempt at damage control. This man is a confirmed misfit for the office he occupies. Think how an Obama could have handled this situation and you will immediately understand why this country is where she is. Mr Governor, Sir, it is not about the height of that tower cap you wear. But who knows…it just might be hiding our problem. You use it to cover up that air~head of yours which, increasingly, is showing you up for a fool: that it is completely devoid of brain matters.

    I can’t just think of another word to describe him….how can a school be closed for 8 months!
    ajimobi you a wicked man.

    Naija is effed! See this man talking to them like he is doing them a favor! Talking about they aren’t respecting him. Their school has been closed for 8 months, and you are talking about respect? I give up on our leaders.

    I think they spin doctors did a poor job.

    They need to focus on the following before the end of your tenure

    Gather civil societies representing oyo state government; workers, pensioners, teachers, now students , etc with the aim of positive PR.

    They need to genuinely show that they love ALL OF YOUR TACTICS. You Need the public to believe that they ALWAYS pushed you to the wall, that’s why you took great pains to ensure non payment of salaries, sack, unending civil unrest, closure of schools and university, etc

    Oshiomole did it with the case of the widow. You can achieve it.

    Put in positive efforts, be faithful loyal and honest. love the people genuinely, serve oyo state with all your strength. Defend her unity. Uphold her honour and past glory so that history will be kind to you.

    Men while his daughter has posted this same video on inta but conveniently disabled the comments on said video. If you are proud of his actions why disable comments. She said of the video there are two sides to every story. Na so!

    Mr constituted authority, you are in a position of power because we the people put you there. Those students you speak to are the people who elected you to serve. You are a public servant! Never forget that! This situation is shameful and you should take full responsibility and do what it takes to remedy the situation. Also, stop announcing the meetings you had. Let your actions be louder than you words. What is with the Yoruba? English is our national language please. Get it together and stop disgracing yourself. Freaking savage?

    I would have expected his media team to help him draft an apology from the undeserving Governor earliest by today, to be circulated in all the daily newspapers. But then what do I know about politics.
    This video is reiterating the arrogance of an elected leader in the face of the governed, I can imagine it been catalogued as a reference material for Harvard. Shame on Ajumobi!

    As for the Family Karma they wait.
