…says ‘party has lost a decent man’
All Progressives Congress, on Friday, condoled with the family of former Oyo State governor, Abiola Ajimobi, saying the ruling party has lost a decent man.
National Chairman, APC Caretaker Committee, Mai Mala Buni, in a statement, described Ajimobi’s death as very sad.
Buni said Ajimobi’s death came at a time the party was looking up to its leaders to drive needed reforms and reconciliations.
The statement said, “Senator Ajimobi’s death has come at a crucial time when the party is looking up to our well-meaning leaders to champion the needed reforms and reconciliation moves to be undertaken by the newly-appointed caretaker committee of our great party.
“The APC has lost a decent man who in spirit and character embodied our progressive mantra.
“In mourning, we remember the fond memories and indelible strides Senator Ajimobi left behind. We will always remember a loving father, husband, gentleman, astute administrator, patriotic Nigerian, fine politician who was exemplary in all his private and public endeavours.
“We express our condolences to Senator Ajimobi’s immediate family, the government and people of Oyo State, and indeed the entire APC family over this painful loss. May Almighty Allah be merciful and grant Senator Ajimobi Aljanat Firdaus.”
The immediate past Oyo governor died on Thursday from complications arising from the novel Coronavirus.
