Alaafin Commiserates With Makinde Over Ajimobi’s Death — He Was The 20th Gov I Worked With


The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba (Dr.) Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi has commiserated with Governor Seyi Makinde over the demise of former governor Abiola Ajimobi.

Alaafin, in a condolence message signed by his Chief Press Officer, Bode Durojaoye, described the late former Governor of Oyo State, Abiola Ajimobi as a leader who demonstrated the rare combination of thinking and doing.
Alaafin, who noted that Ajimobi was the 20th governor he worked with, stated that he came with a vision; he had courage and competence; he believed in probity and that is why Oyo State had a smooth primary.

“The late governor was more interested in people who can sustain his institutional reforms and other legacies and not in his own personal preferences,” he said.

The Paramount Ruler went further, “Ajimobi was the 20th governor that I have worked with. I have worked intimately as a son and as a governor. If you are brilliant, truthful and hardworking, he will work with you. He ran an inclusive government but you can only get something from him if you key into his vision of RTR, meaning reformation, transformation and repositioning”.

The Monarch pointed out that while institutions are important, a leader cannot be deemed to have succeeded, no matter how much he has achieved infrastructural renewal and other areas of development until he developed people who could succeed him and nurture the institution that he had built.

Alaafin, however, said unequivocally that the state will always remember the former Governor as the purveyor of unprecedented achievements that have far-reaching effects on the lives of the people.

Alaafin also prayed that the Almighty Allah grant the families fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
