He claims that nothing has changed in the state for the better since Ajimobi stepped down as governor.
Sheikh Bello made the remarks at the 1st Annual Ishaq Abiola Ajimobi Memorial Ramadan Lecture, which took place at the Ishaq Abiola Ajimobi Central Mosque in Oke-Ado, Ibadan, the state capital of Oyo.
The former Governor of Oyo State, he claims, has died, but the legacy he leaves behind will not be forgotten by the people of the state.

Sheikh Bello stated that while alive, Ajimobi did his best to touch many lives, and that the people of the state, particularly Muslims, will miss him.
“Insecurity has returned to the state; people cannot move freely; we have returned to the era of hooliganism; people in the state can no longer sleep with their two eyes,” he said.

Alhaji Mutiu Oladejo a.k.a. Onimalu, the event's chairman, said that people in the state had missed the late Governor's positive impact, and that the legacy he left behind could not be overstated.
He, on the other hand, urged Muslims across the state to band together and support one another, rather than focusing on their flaws.
“While alive, Ajimobi did his best, and people in the state will never forget his footprint,” he said.
