President Muhammadu Buhari condoles with government and people of Oyo State over the passing of a former governor, Abiola Ajimobi, whose contributions to the development of the state, and nation, will always be remembered.
The President commiserates with the family of the former governor, who served the country as a Senator, 2003, before winning the governorship election in 2011, remaining steadfast and consistent in his progressive views, and working assiduously for the creation of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
President Buhari’s condolence message was contained in a statement signed by his spokesman, Femi Adesina. The statement partly reads:
“As the party chieftain bows out, President Buhari believes he left the world at a crucial moment when the party and the country needed his counsels to heal, and grow, noting that his absence will be sorely felt by all associates, particularly in the APC.”
The President prays that the Almighty God will comfort the family of the former governor, and grant him a peaceful rest.
KanyiDaily had earlier reported that Ajimobi died on Thursday, June 25, 2020, around 4pm in a private hospital in Lagos after spending weeks in intensive care for coronavirus complications.
