We've Reconciled With Ajimobi Family - Oyo State Govt

The crisis between the Oyo State government and the family of late former governor of the state, Abiola Ajimobi may have been resolved.

The widow, Mrs. Florence Ajimobi had expressed misgivings over the way her late husband was treated by the government during his illness.

When he eventually died of complications of Covid-19, the deputy governor's convoy was denied entry to the residence of Ajimobi during the eight day prayer for the deceased.

Receiving the leadership of the South-West Group of Online Publishers who paid him a Sallah visit, the State Deputy Governor, Mr Rauf Olaniyan, said Mrs Ajimobi has called him and they have settled everything.

He said: “I was not angry with Mrs Ajimobi and the family.

I had no premonition that something like that was going to happen.

“When you are going into politics, you must not forget to put the Omoluabi ethos in your bag.

“ In fact, you must have had it before going into politics. You must know when to give respect.

“I cautioned the ADC and Chief Detail after we got there that nobody must be touched.

“I told them to keep their heads when others were losing theirs.

“She (Mrs Ajimobi) has called and we have settled everything.

“I understand her, she was grieving, mourning the death of her husband. We don't know the enormity of that grief.”
