The Wife of the former governor of Oyo state, Florence Ajimobi on Sunday expressed disgust that the Governor of the state, Engr. Seyi Makinde and his deputy, Engr. Rauf Olaniyan played politics with the death of her husband.

According to her, the late Ajimobi had never had any problem with the state government despite their different political affiliation, but wondered why the state government saw him as its enemy.

“We never had any rift with the governor or the state government,” she stressed.

The state government had during the time Ajimobi was hospitalised, said it extended hands of fellowship to the family of the late governor but they declined.

But the wife of the late former governor said it was a lie because she never had any conversation with the state government when her husband was ill.

Florence expressed her feeling 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 deceased on a condolence visit.

According to her, she has read many untrue stories on the pages of the newspaper since the demise of her husband but declared that. “my husband took ill precisely on May 27 and he was hospitalised.

“I read on the papers that he (the governor) claimed that he called me but I didn’t pick. 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.

“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 to guide us in whatever we do.

“Ajimobi is gone today, I am going to mourn and respect his wishes. That is what I am doing today; Lay him to rest peacefully. I don’t want any controversy.”she said.
