Florence Ajimobi Rebuffed Governor Makinde’s Offer For Help by dre11(m): 7:36am On Jun 29
LAGOS – The family of former governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, rejected the offer of assistance from his successor, Governor Seyi Ma­kinde, while he was undergo­ing treatment in Lagos before his death last week Thursday, Daily Independent has learnt.

Relationship between Aji­mobi’s family and the Oyo State government has been frosty leading to accusations and counter-accusations on what was responsible for the delay in his burial.

Tongues started wagging on Sunday when a video went viral in which the for­mer First Lady, Mrs. Florence Ajimobi, raised dust over the failure of Governor Makinde to reach out to her since the sickness and eventual demise of her husband.

In the said video, the for­mer First Lady was seen ac­cusing Governor Makinde and his deputy, Engineer Rauf Olaniyan, of failing to reach out to her.

But sources knowledge­able about happenings in Oyo State confirmed that the governor was actually frus­trated out of his bid to take good care of his predecessor.

“Governor Makinde on hearing of the sickness of his predecessor asked one of his special advisers to make contact and establish the true situation. The said adviser got in contact with the deputy governor of Lagos State, Obafemi Hamzat, after attempts to reach the former First Lady failed”.


Sources said that Hamzat’s intervention led to the communication of the phone number of a personal physician to the late former governor to the adviser who transmitted the same to Gov­ernor Makinde.

It was gathered that through the Commissioner for Health in Oyo State, the governor summoned the said personal physician, who hap­pens to be the wife of a politi­cian and former office holder in Ajimobi government.

The said doctor, while she was on her way to the Gov­ernment House in Ibadan, was said to have told her husband, who immediately asked her to abandon the trip to the Government House and sneak into Lagos.

That effort stalled, the governor of Oyo State again requested for and put calls through to the former First Lady, who ignored the calls.

The governor was then said to have reached out to his colleague in Lagos, Baba­jide Sanwo-Olu for interface.

It was gathered that the interface between the fami­ly and Sanwo-Olu did not go through as the former First Lady again stalled it.


Sources further said that with the obvious determina­tion of the former First Lady not to carry Oyo State govern­ment along in the health sit­uation of her husband, Gov­ernor Makinde had to hand every other thing over to San­wo-Olu in Lagos, saying: “My brother, I leave everything in your hands. Look after him for us as a state and if there is anything I should do, I am just a phone call away.”

Upon hearing of the eventual demise of Senator Ajimobi on Thursday, Gov­ernor Makinde was again said to have reached out to the former First Lady, who never picked nor returned any of his several calls.

Nonetheless, the governor, who was in Benin City, Edo State, for a PDP assignment immediately directed the state flag be flown at half-mast in honour of the late former governor, the source stated.

He further explained: “I was in the know that the governor was about calling a special exco session to decide on the best way to immortal­ise the departed governor but the uncooperative posture from the former First Lady stalled all that”, one of the sources said.

The source continued: “What happened thereafter was that the governor of Oyo received calls from Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, who broke the news of the death of Ajimobi to the state governor and then request­ed that the family had asked him to plead with Makinde to release the controversial Quarter 361 with adjoin­ing Plots B and C totalling 23,627sqm (about 48 plots) which was part of the ille­gally acquired land revoked by the state government in February this year.

“Governor Makinde wast­ed no time in telling the vice president that the land in question is under litigation and that it was the same late Ajimobi who filed a suit against the government over the revocation of the contro­versial plot of land.

“After Osinbajo’s call to Governor Makinde came the call of former President Olusegun Obasanjo on the same matter, other governors and other well-meaning lead­ers of both the PDP and APC.

“Governor Makinde only stated the situation of things as per the fact that the house in question is under litiga­tion and it would amount to toying with the power of the courts to allow such burial there. The governor was also said to have confirmed that bodies are by law not to be buried in a GRA like Agodi and even Oluyole estate. He, however, was said to have told the statesmen who called that he had nothing against burying the former governor in Oluyole Estate, where he lived till he died.

“You can see that it is baf­fling that all the efforts of Gov­ernor Makinde on the Ajimo­bi matter were rebuffed. The even understand the state protocol after eight years in Government House. She needformer First Lady cannot ed to first inform the sitting governor about her husband’s sickness and then the eventu­al demise. There should be no excuse for that lapse. ­

“I am sure her anger against Makinde is because he refused to allow her gain ownership of Quarter 361 through the back door. You want to wonder why a wom­an who just lost her husband would be concerned about something as ephemeral as property.”

The source concluded by saying that the attempt to blackmail Governor Ma­kinde will not stand.

It's like arrogance runs in that family, see the way she was addressing the Deputy Governor asking why he didn't call her to express sympathy, the man said he did severally but she didn't answer, then she said why didn't he send her a text because she doesn't answer unknown numbers as a politician wife.
Then she claimed that Seyi Makinde is playing politics with her husband's death without any comments on APC members and media such as Nation Newspaper which was releasing statements daily using her husband's name as the APC crisis was unfolding.
How will such woman accept offer of help with this arrogance?
But come to think of it, why would she want to bury her husband in a land under dispute, what if they finally lose the case they will now claim that our husband and father was buried here. shocked

People and greed.
Her frustrations are obviously because the present Oyo state government has not allowed them to get away with some of their illegally acquired properties.

Not all women are really sober over there husband's death..Deep inside some are happy.

That family is one kind.

That was how the daughter of Ajimobi was addressing the students of Lautech in a very rude and uncouth manner because they were challenging her father, Mr Constituted Authority.

If you want your kids to be well brought up, marry a decent, wellbehaved and god-fearing woman.

Nobody should blame d governor. The secrecy surrounding his ailing moments for obvious political scheming of d APC NEC compounded everything. Just as in d write-up her anger is cos she didn't get d plots of land under litigation thru d back door
