Gov. Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State on Tuesday said that he washed dead bodies as a youth to pay his tuition fees while schooling abroad.

Ajimobi said this at a South-West Youths Regional Summit in Osogbo.

The governor, while urging the youth to have a positive mindset toward hard work, said he spent eight years abroad washing dead bodies to survive.

He said his parents only sent him 30 dollars all through his stay abroad, adding that he had to look for a way to survive.

“I left Nigeria in 1963 to study abroad, but throughout my stay there, I was washing dead bodies to support myself to go to school.

“When ever I got home from work, I will be weeping, remembering the number of dead bodies I washed.

“My boss at work then said I should not be afraid or fear, adding that such feeling is normal for first comers.

“He encouraged me to always see those dead bodies as iced fish.

“But against all odds, I survived and that is why I am urging youths to see hard work as the only way to success.

“I am saying this to challenge the youth of our next generation not to give up.

“This is our chance as youths and as Yorubas to come together to chart a successful pathway for the country.’’

Ajimobi, however, urged Yoruba leaders and governors to unite for the progress of the Yoruba race.

Who you dey deceive, did you not enjoy good governance abroad? Why not emulate those great leaders who makes washing dead bodies profitable enough to pay your school fees in England £ Wouldn’t you have been more frustrated if their universities were on strike, lecturers not paid, university staffs not paid for 4 years and more?

So, you should shut your dirty mouth and govern people right

And so? Who doesn't know that handling dead bodies abroad is mainly done by machines? You hardly touch the bodies except for autopsy purposes.

Abeg tell us another story! Unless you mined the skulls of the corpses. undecided

The same youths you've turned to miscreants through schools' closure due to non-payment of their lecturers' salaries and emoluments for around a year now.

Useless man, mr Constituted authority. Mistake of a governor.

Okay.
You mean you washed corpse for 2 terms and didn't learn you will die someday.
You're given 2 term as Governor,but you live like a mini god.
A religious bigot like you also deserve two term in Hell.
You're a disgrace to the omoluabi's.

Can people here given chance to wash dead bodies to send themselves to school in Nigeria?
Where a secondary school principal in Oyo State cannot convinently afford the cost of sponsoring himself/herself for a degree in Technical University, Ibadan, Oyo State with tuition fee of about #950,000 per session.

Ironically, these political leaders despite their claims of humble backgrounds still treat the common man poorly and without dignity.
It's a shame really
