Governor Makinde Didn’t Call Or Pay Condolence Visit After My Husband's Death - Mrs Florence Ajimobi 3

While receiving members of the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF) in their Oluyole residence on Sunday, Mrs Ajimobi expressed displeasure with the treatment meted to her husband by the state government.

She disclosed that Governor Makinde neither visited the family nor sent them message since her husband was admitted in the hospital, even after the burial.

The widow of the former governor who said she was just trying to set the record straight, appealed to Makinde not to play bitter politics with his death, but allow him to rest in perfect peace. She said:

“I read in the newspapers few days ago that the governor of Oyo state Engr. Seyi Makinde claimed to have called me and I didn’t pick up, he never paid Ajimobi family a visit since my husband was admitted in hospital, neither did he send anyone nor sent us a message.

“I don’t have his contact and I have never spoken to him. Even if he called me and I didn’t pick up because of my mourning state, he could have sent me a message. Ajimobi’s family is not competing with him in any way, we are all working for the growth, development and progress of Oyo state, although our party might be different, but we are working for the same goal.

“Do I need to send an official message to the governor to inform him about the death of my husband before he could send us a condolence message or pay us a condolence visit? It is not pleasant to hear. What kind of politics are we playing?”

The late former governor’s wife expressed her grievances and pointed out that her husband didn’t have any issue with Makinde when he was alive, and pleaded that he should be allowed to have a peaceful eternal rest.

“As a former public chief servant, who had assiduously served this state, he deserved some honours and not show of shame when he had gone to rest. He never planned to go this soon, it could be anybody as no one knows the next moment,” Mrs Florence said.

She then called on the state government to stop peddling lies about him and the entire family because he was no longer available to defend himself.
