Florence, wife of the late former governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi has expressed her displeasure over an apparent failure of the state government to offer condolences to the family after the death of her husband.
In a video that has gone viral, Mrs. Ajimobi is seen challenging Oyo State Deputy Governor, Rauf Olaniya, as he struggled to explain how he had called her phone but did not get through.
The deputy governor had led a delegation to pay a condolence visit to the Ajimobis.
“You should have sent a text message sir. I don’t have your number, I am the wife of a politician. I cannot pick calls from people I don’t know…. your excellency. After all, we will all die. My husband is dead and he served this state for eight good years…everybody is going to die”, Florence said as other family members tried to pacify her.
The family alleged that the state government refused to offer condolences over Ajimobi’s demise despite the fact that he served a two term as governor.
According to the family, the Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde was also responsible for the delay in the burial.
The Ajimobi family and Oyo State government had clashed earlier over the burial site.
The late politician was interred on Sunday morning at his Oluyole home after the government rejected a request that he should be buried at his Agodi GRA property, citing ongoing litigation.
The case was said to have been initiated by late Ajimobi himself.
