Former governor of Lagos State, and a National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, while reacting to the death of late Oyo State former governor and member of the APC, has described Late Senator Abiola Ajimobi, as the best and most productive governor Oyo state has had.
According to Tinubu, the people of Oyo were wise and very well served to have elected him as their governor for eight years noting that AJimobi will always be remembered for the vital contributions he made to the establishment of the ruling party – APC.
“His legacy as a governor will be an enduring and positive one. The first governor to serve two consecutive terms in Oyo, he broke a political jinx that many said could not be broken”. Tinubu noted.
Speaking further, Bola Tinubu stated that Ajimobi was an honest friend and brother who had the interest of the people at heart. “We shared a common progressive vision for our country and how to bring prosperity, justice and hope to its people” he said.
“His recent emergence as Deputy National Chairman of our party was in affirmation of his many years of service and devotion to the pursuit of democratic governance. The history of the APC cannot be squarely written without him” he said.
Also, to the family of the deceased, the former Lagos governor described Abiola AJimobi as loving husband and father, and prays that the family finds comfort that only Almighty Allahcan provide at the moment.
“At his core, Senator Ajimobi was a family man. He was a loving husband and father. My heart grieves for his wife, Florence, and their children. May they find the comfort that only Almighty Allah can provide at this moment”.
“Our party, the All Progressives Congress, has lost one of its leading lights. The Yoruba race and Oyo State have lost a favourite son. I have lost a dedicated friend, brother and ally”.
