Senator Ajimobi was a great patriot - Kwara Governor

Date: 2020-06-26

The Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has described the late former Oyo State Governor Isiaka Abiola Ajimobi as a great patriot who could rightly lay claim to being a 'Nigerian' in the true sense of the word.

The Governor stated this in a condolence message issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Rafiu Ajakaye in Ilorin.

AbdulRazaq explained that Ajimobi was "an outstanding oil industry technocrat who opted out to serve his people, leaving indelible footprints in the socio-economic terrain of Oyo State and cultivated friends as well as built bridges across every divide of our country".

He described the death of Ajimobi as a national loss, praying the Almighty Allah to comfort the family and grant him Aljannah Firdaus. According to him, "the death of Senator Isiaka Abiola Ajimobi is a huge loss to the family, the governing APC, and to the entire people of Oyo State and Nigeria".

"Senator Ajimobi was a dear brother and close family-friend whose wise counsel and guidance l will forever uphold and cherish. My family has indeed lost a great friend and 'egbon'; we send forth our deepest condolences to the Ajimobis and the entire people of Oyo State” the Governor added. "On behalf of my family, the government and the people of Kwara State, I also commiserate with Mr President, the Governor of Oyo State, and members and leadership of our party, the All Progressives Congress. May the Almighty Allah give the family the fortitude to bear this loss and repose the soul of a man who left a lasting legacy as the first two-term Governor of Oyo State. "
