Former Oyo governor, Ajimobi to be buried Friday

The immediate past governor of Oyo state, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, who died on Thursday is to be buried on Friday.

According to a source, the burial ceremony is expected to hold at 10:00am.

Ajimobi died at age 70.

The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare confirmed the death on his Twitter handle on Thursday.

“The passing of my elder brother, Sen. Abiola Ajimobi, is both untimely and tragic. He served the good people of Oyo for so long.

“We wanted him to use his experience to guide us through trying times. Sadly, dusk came too early and we must bid goodnight.

“Sun re, Aare of Ibadan!

“My prayers and thoughts go out to the wife and the family at this time of their sorrow. The Lord that comforts will comfort them and grant them inner peace that passes all understanding,” he posted on his Twitter handle, @SundayDareSD.

Ajimobi was announced as the Acting Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, last week, after the Court of Appeal upheld the suspension of Adams Oshiomhole.

There was a renewed anxiety last week Thursday night over the health condition of the former governor but his family dispelled the death rumour.
