“Kindly disregard all rumours, just rumours. In all, we remain prayerful”
Kemi Olunloyo also corroborated that Ajimobi is still alive as she reached out to a family member. She wrote:
I was inundated by messages that fmr Governor @AAAjimobi Ajimobi has DIED in Lagos! I could not get info from Oyo lawmakers, elites, media. I have finally confirmed and spoke to the family 9:15pm 6/18/20 He is ALIVE and talking recovering
A daughter told me: “God is not ready to take him Aunty Kemi. We decided to keep our dad’s health private. He has served Nigeria and will continue his goodwill.” The Ajimobi’s are my second cousins. The former governor has been recovering from #Covid19 related complications.

From tomorrow, Nigerian Journalists will write epistles how Ajimobi nearly ended world hunger.
But death stopped him..
Abba Kyari's death showed niggas format.
By the way don't expect his friends in power to fix healthcare after Ajimobi's death.
