President Muhammadu Buhari has sent his condolence message to the government and people of Oyo State over the death of Former Governor, Isiaka Abiola Ajimobi.
In a statement by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, President Buhari expressed that Ajimobi’s contributions to the development of the state, and nation, will always be remembered.
The Statement reads:
“The President commiserates with the family of the former governor, who served the country as a Senator, 2003, before winning the governorship election 2011, remaining steadfast and consistent in his progressive views, and working assiduously for the creation of the All Progressives Congress.
“As the party chieftain bows out, President Buhari believes he left the world at a crucial moment when the party and the country needed his counsels to heal and grow, noting that his absence will be sorely felt by all associates, particularly in the APC.
“The President prays that the Almighty God will comfort the family of the former governor, and grant him a peaceful rest.”
