Mrs Florence Ajimboi, wife of deceased ex-governor of Oyo state, Abiola Ajumobi, has accused the Oyo state government of ‘playing politics’ with her husband’s death.
She accused the governor of npt calling her or paying a condolence visit to her.
She said this on a day her husband’s remains were laid to rest amid tight security at his Oluyole residence at 10:05 am on yesterday.
Earlier on Sunday, there had been a heated controversy over where the former governor should be buried.
The widow of the former governor advised the governor to avoid playing politics with the death of her husband.
Ajimobi said: “I read in the newspapers a few days ago that the governor of Oyo State, Mr. Seyi Makinde, claimed to call me and I didn’t pick up, he never visited Ajimobi’s family since my husband was admitted in the hospital, neither has he sent anyone nor sent us a message.
“I don’t have his contact and I have never spoken to him. Even if he called me and I didn’t pick up because of my mourning state, he could have sent me a message.
“Ajimobi’s family is not competing with him in any way, we are all working for the growth, development and progress of Oyo State, although our party might be different, we are working for the same goal.
