Impunity, lawlessness impede Nigeria’s progress, says Ajimobi
Oyo State Governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, yesterday said that the country ís development and progress is being impeded by unbridled culture of impunity and flagrant disobedience to the rule of law and order.
He made this assertion during the inauguration of the chairmen and members of the newly constituted Judicial Service Commission, Local Government Service Commission and State Pension Board.
Until the citizens decide to wean themselves from these negative tendencies, the governor said that the country might continue to lag behind in all the metrics of socioeconomic development.
Reminding the new appointees that they were chosen based on their track record of achievements, integrity and patriotism; the governor enjoined them to consider themselves as strategic partners in his quest to transform the state.
Ajimobi urged the new appointees to bring their wealth of experience to bear by rewriting the history of the board and commissions to which they were appointed to serve in order to justify the confidence reposed in them individually and collectively.
The governor urged the appointees to key into his vision on security, social and physical infrastructure, education, agriculture and industrialization.
Responding on behalf of others, the Chief Judge of the State, Justice Muntar Abimbola, who was inaugurated as the chairman of the JSC, said that the new appointees would not let the governor down by doing their best.
