The Vice President, who was represented at the deceased’s one-year remembrance by Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State, said Ajimobi demonstrated courage and wits while urging leaders to make the most of their positions to serve humanity as the late politician did.
He said, “We miss Ajimobi’s wisdom in governance and politics. He had a good understanding of conflict resolution and he deployed his vast experience in politics and governance to bring about visible socio-economic growth of Oyo State.”
The Deputy Governor of Oyo State, Rauf Olaniyan, said Ajimobi did his best for the state while he was in charge.
Ajimobi’s predecessor, Chief Adebayo Alao-Akala, said the late politician deserved commendations due to his achievements and his frankness.
Alao-Akala said, “Late Ajimobi deserves to be commended for his frankness and sincerity on issues, regardless of political or religious inclinations. He would always speak his mind.”
