We join the people of Nigeria and Oyo State in particular to extend sincere condolences to Her Excellency, Chief Mrs Florence Ajimobi and the entire family of Senator Abiola Ajimobi, the Governor of Oyo State (2011-2019) who passed away on Thursday aged 70.
Senator Ajimobi will continue to be remembered for his stance against the infamous Third Term Agenda as a lawmaker. In Oyo State, our people witnessed road infrastructural development that had not been seen before since the inception of the Fourth Republic.
Oyo Global Forum met with him twice, first in Manchester, the UK, and then at the Government House Ibadan, over issues of affecting development of Oyo Township. Regardless of how the resolutions our meetings were implemented, we remain grateful for those opportunities to directly present the aspirations of our people for peace and development to him as the Governor.
As he returns to his creator, may all his good deeds count and he be forgiven of all his shortcomings. We pray he is granted a place in Aljannat and that his family, friends and associates have comfort this difficult period.
Taiwo Hassan Adebayo
OGF General Secretary.
