Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State Monday described the state as one that harbours the "largest party of lies" with so much complexity.

Speaking at the inter-religious prayer session held to usher in Year 2013 at the Governor’s Office Car Park, in Ibadan, the governor added that the state was a difficult one to govern.

According to Mr. Ajimobi, "it is a place where you help one person and the remaining nine are offended.

"It is difficult for someone to rule a state. It is in Oyo State that you have the largest party of lies. No matter how good you are, you will have enemies and friends", the governor noted.

The governor noted that because nobody is perfect, his government has its own faults but all of them are done in good faith.

The prayer which was well attended by politicians, civil servants, and many other notable people in the state also served as beacon of hope for workers as the governor said many times that it would be a "pay back year" for them to compensate them for absorbing all the challenges,  pressures and "tsunami of change" that his administration introduced to make them better.

"For you to have been able to withstand the pressure that we have brought to bear on you; for you to have survived our close-marking approach, shocking treatment and the pyramid of checks and balances, be assured that this year will be a year of reward for you.

"It is difficult for someone to rule a state. It is in Oyo State that you have the largest party of lies. No matter how good you are, you will have enemies and friends"

"We have demanded a lot from you and you have given us; and for those of you who have survived the tsunami of change which was aimed at instilling discipline in the system and make the civil service service-oriented, you will be adequately compensated,’’ he promised.

While giving glory to God for being with his administration, the civil servants and the entire people of the state, Governor Ajimobi said but for God, his efforts at transforming and repositioning the state would have been insignificant.

He urged the workers to be Godly and to re-dedicate themselves this year, pledging that his administration’s package for them for 2013 would be among the best in the South-West zone.

The governor also promised that his administration would build housing estates and arrange for mortgage for the workers to enable them own the houses without any stress.

Mr. Ajimobi called on religious leaders in the state to continue to pray for his administration so that it could deliver on its promises and take the state to greater heights.

Oyo State Head of Service, Mr. Tajudeen Aremu had earlier in his welcome address urged civil servants to key into the blueprint of the government for the successful implementation of the laudable programmes of the Ajimobi administration.

Also speaking at the prayer session, Rev. Francis Omolade and Prof. D. O. S. Noibi admonished civil servants to be dedicated to their duties with the fear of God and shun corrupt tendencies which they said had virtually become a cankerworm, eating up the system.

Present at the prayer session were Mr. Moses Alake Adeyemo,Oyo State Chief Judge, Justice Badejoko Adeniji, Senator representing Oyo Central Senatorial District, Mr. Ayo Adeseun and other dignitaries.
