Ajimobi’s wife, Florence accuses Oyo govt of playing politics with her husband’s death.

Mrs Florence Ajimobi, wife of late former Gov. Abiola Ajimobi, has alleged that the Oyo State Government was playing politics with the death of her husband.

She made the allegation while receiving a delegation of Nigeria Governor’s Forum (NGF), led by Gov. Kayode Fayemi, on Sunday in Ibadan.

The News Agency of Nigeria(NAN) reports that the delegation was in Ibadan on a condolence visit to the Ajimobi family.

Mrs Ajimobi said that none of the state governor and his deputy called her while her husband was hospitalised until he died.

“The governor of Oyo state never called me. He never signed a condolence message. Never called even when my husband was on sick bed for one month. What politics are you playing, please?

“Life is short. I am a Christian and my husband was a Muslim. We should allow fear of God to guide us in whatever we do. Ajimobi is gone today, whatever he does doesn’t matter to me.

“It does not matter to me as his wife or widow. I am going to mourn and respect his wishes. That is what I am doing today. Laid him to rest peacefully. I do not want any controversy,” she said.

The deceased’s wife said that her husband never had problem with the state government in spite of their different political affiliation to warrant efforts aimed at tarnishing his image.

“My husband took ill precisely on May 27 and he was hospitalised and I read on the papers that he claimed that he called me but he didn’t.

“He did not call me. Even if he had called me, I never had his number. He should have sent text messages for record purposes.

“Then today again, I read in the papers that Ajimobi’s family are lying. Mr Deputy governor, my husband never had anything against the governor.

“We were in different political parties and he was an elder statesman. He slept on that ground,” she said.
