…it was like a dream until the reality dawn on us: Rt Hon Debo Ogundoyin
The 9th Oyo State House of Assembly led by The Speaker of Oyo State House of Assembly, Rt Hon. Adebo Edward Ogundoyin presided over session to honour the demise of former Governor of Oyo State, Senator Isiaq Abiola Ajimobi.
Speaker in his writing with title to honour the late governor, “Remarks of the Right Honourable Speaker at the special sitting in Honour of the immediate past governor, His Excellency, Senator Isiaq Abiola Ajimobi (Late) On Tuesday, 30th June, 2020”
“Dawn  To  Dust, Goodnight  Governor  Isiaq  Abiola  Ajimobi”.
“O death where is thy sting? O grave where is thy victory?”.
He added that the feeling was odd when the news of the death of the Gov broke out as many didn’t saw it coming.
“When the news of the demise of the immediate past Governor of the State, HIS Excellency, Senator Abiola Ajimobi filtered in on Thursday, 25th June, 2020 it was like a dream until the reality dawn on us”.
“His death was unexpected and painful because he died at a time that his wealth of experience was needed by the nation, especially his political party All Progressive Party (APC)”.
“Governor Ajimobi was endowed with supernatural wisdom and intelligence, the virtues which he displayed in the governance of the State in particular and the nation in general”.
“He was a state man of note as he served as a Senator of the Federal Republic Of Nigeria and Governor of Oyo State in two consecutive terms (2011-2019) hence he became the “koseleri” Governor”.
“As the helmsman of the State, he embarked on several infrastructure development across the State. He was an amiable and humorous personality. He impacted positively on so many lives especially his political associates”.
He was able to change the political landscape of the State through his three points agenda of restoration, transformation and repositioning. He made his impact in governance, he greatly improved the environmental situation especially in the Capital City of Ibadan. There was monumental improvement in terms of security of lives and properties while brigandage was reduced to its barest minimum”.
“Governor Ajimobi was no doubt a renowned captain of industry, successful manager, seasoned administrator, political juggernaut, responsible family and fan of his political followers. His sense of humour cannot be easily forgotten”.
“The Honourable Members, Staff of the Oyo State House of Assembly sympathize with Her Excellency, Chief, Dr. (Mrs.) Florence Ajimobi, the children, entire Ajimobi family of Oja’ba in Ibadan, Political allies, friends and the entire people of Oyo State on this irreparable loss”.
“ We pray that God in His infinite mercy grant them the fortitude to bear the loss.Adieu our Former Governor”. Ogundoyin concluded
