Previous Oyo Governor, Adebayo Alao-Akala, has said that the All Progressives Congress (APC) will move in the direction of solidarity and electoral triumphs out of appreciation for late ex-Governor, Abiola Ajimobi.
Akala in a sympathy message said he and his wife were profoundly disheartened.
The politician noted that he was comforted in the fact that Ajimobi left behind “enduring legacies for the people of Oyo State to enjoy for generations.”
He depicted late Ajimobi as an energetic open administrator and an incredible voice of moral conscience.
The party leader said they have lost a mammoth as Ajimobi was an fearless pioneer, a defender of democracy and a contender for the people of Yoruba nation.
“He was a politician of high repute and immense clout. All his life, he defined his politics and pitted his tent early in life with the progressive school”.
Akala said that late Ajimobi’s choice to set up APC Reconciliation Committee in Oyo was informed by his intentions to see an assembled party.
He lamented that Ajimobi didn’t live to see him reconciled distressed members.
Akala, in any case, vowed that the board of trustees would convey on the ideal mandate.
“Senator Ajimobi honoured me with an appointment to Chair Oyo State APC Reconciliation Committee. We’ll not only ensure a united APC but also dedicate our future landslide electoral victories to the departed great leader.
He implored Almighty Allah to comfort the family and award Ajimobi Al-Jannah Fridauz.
