Governor of Kano state Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje describes the death of the former Governor of Oyo state, Abiola Ajimobi as not only shocking but devastating to the nation.
In his words, Ganduje said: “His death came calling when we needed him the most. He was undoubtedly a detribalised leader and a pillar of national development. This death would continue knocking hard on us for a very long time,” he lamented.
He prayed for Almighty Allah’s Blessing and Forgiveness to the reposed soul of the late Ajimobi, urging his family to strive hard and follow his footsteps of unrelenting commitment for nation building and patriotic leadership.
“It is on this note that I, on behalf of my family, government of Kano state and the good people of Kano state, I am sending our condolences to the family of our late respected and respectful in-law, the government and people of Oyo state, over this unbearable demise of the former governor of Oyo state, Mr Abiola Ajimobi,” governor Ganduje said.
