Wife of the late immediate past governor of Oyo, Florence Ajimobi on Sunday attacked the deputy governor of Oyo state, the govenor of the state, Engr. Seyi Makinde and his deputy, Engr. Rauf Olaniyan for playing politics with the death of her husband.
She said her husband never had problem with the state government despite their different political affiliation, but the state government saw him as their enemy.
Florence who spoke when the Deputy Governor led members of Nigeria Governors forum, led by its chairman, Dr. Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti state to the Oluyole residence of the late Governed urged Makinde to allow fear of God guide him in whatever he does.
According to her, she had read many untrue stories on the pages of the newspaper since the demise of her husband.
Florence said; “my husband took I’ll precisely on 27th of May and he was hospitalised. And I read on the papers that he claimed that he called me but he didn’t. He didn’t call me. Even if he had called me, I never had his number. He should have sent text messages for record purposes.
“Then today again, I read in the papers that Ajimobi’s family are lying about. Mr. Deputy governor, my husband never had anything against the governor. We were in different political parties and he was an elder statesman. He slept on that ground.
“The governor of Oyo state never called me. He never signed a condolence message. Never called even when my husband was on sick bed for one month. What politics are you playing, please?
“Life is short. I am a Christian  and my husband was a Muslim. We should allow fear of God guide us in whatever we do. Ajimobi is gone today, wherever he does doesn’t matter to me. It does not matter to me as his wife of widow. I am going to mourn and respect his wishes. That is what I am doing today. Laid him to rest peacefully. I don’t want any controversy.
“Everything I read in the papers, i just swallowed it and i let it go. Please, the press are here, we never had any rift with the governor or the state government. I never dialogue with them and I never confronted them and I never send them a word because I didn’t know it was necessary for me to send official message. I didn’t send a message to governor Fayemi, I didn’t send to governor Ganduje and I didn’t send to Governor Sanwolu. I didn’t send to anybody. It was all over the social media. They knew my husband was ill. The least anybody can do is to send me a word of encouragement at that time.”
