Senators Teslim Folarin and AbdulFatai Buhari, on Saturday, led a delegation of the federal and state lawmakers on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Oluyole residence of late former Governor Abiola Ajimobi to pay a condolence visit.
Oloye Folarin while addressing journalists, said Senator Ajimobi’s death came as a rude shock to all the lawmakers and all that concerned. “Our great leader was full of life and radiated good health the last time we met. In fact, he looked younger than his age” he lamented.
The former Senate leader tearfully said His Excellency Ajimobi’s death has robbed the progressive family of its eloquent and exemplary leader. He will be sorely missed by the APC family, the people of Oyo State and Nigeria at large.
“Though our Oga is no more, his legendary achievements as a public administrator live on. He was undoubtedly and universally acknowledged as the Architect of Modern Oyo State; his Koseleri records in the governance of Oyo State will be very difficult to match”.
“We salute our fallen leader for his qualitative services to Nigeria and the APC. We will always remember him for his hard work, dedication and commitment.”
The Delegation included: Federal Lawmakers; Rt. Hon. Olusegun Odebubmi Bunvic (Ogo-Oluwa/Surulere), Rt. Hon. Adeyemi Akeem Skimen (Afijio/Oyo East/Oyo West/Atiba), Hon. Musiliudeen Olaide Akinremi (Ibadan North), Hon. Akin Alabi (Egbeda/Ona-Ara), Hon. Shina Peller (Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Kajola/ Iwajowa).
The Oyo State lawmakers present were Rt. Hon. Alarape Asimiyu Niran (Atiba), Rt. Hon. Wunmi Oladeji (Ogbomoso North), Hon. Isiaka Kazeem Tunde (Oyo East/Oyo West), Hon. Bamigboye Jacob Abidoye (Oriire) and Hon. Oyeleke Simeon Adegbola (Ogo-Oluwa /Surulere)
