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 his death.
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.
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.
