Ibadan High Chiefs and baales, who were elevated to the status of Obas by the late former Oyo State governor, Abiola Ajimobi, on Wednesday described the death of the late politician as sad and as a great loss to Oyo State, Nigeria and the world at large.

They expressed this in a condolence message, signed by the Otun Olubadan and Balogun of Ibadan, Oba Lekan Balogun and Oba Owolabi Olakulehin, respectively.

The statement described the late acting National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as an illustrious and patriotic Ibadan man and as a revered Nigerian of immeasurable zeal.

They said, “The late Ajimobi was patriotic to a fault, especially in matters that related to Ibadanland. Both friends and enemies that he made were consequences of his undiluted patriotism to the cause of Ibadanland and humanity.

“Though not without his shortcomings like every mortal, the former governor did his best as a considerate humanist, breaking the jinx to govern the state for two terms as the most referenced.”

They sympathised with Governor Seyi Makinde; the Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Saliu Adetunji; and the people of Oyo State generally.

They urged Ajimobi’s widow, Florence, the children and the entire Ajimobi family to rejoice in the fact that the former governor “came, saw and conquered.”
