Oyo State Deputy Governor Engineer Rauf Aderemi Olaniyan has said that he decided to remain calm with the reactions of Mrs Florence Ajimobi wife of the former Governor of oyo state Senator Abiola Ajimobi during the visit and burial of her husband
He said her reactions were not enough to make him angry because he understood the enormity of her grief
Recall that the deputy governor was been turned back from the Oluyole residence of late Ajimobi during his 8-day final prayers, just a few days after the former First Lady was taped castigating the Governor Seyi Makinde-led administration for not showing sympathy during the sickness and the eventual death of her husband.
Speaking with online Journalist at his private residence in Ibadan, the Igboho born Civil Engineer said “I was not angry with Mrs Ajimobi and the family. I had no presentiment that such a thing would happen. But when you are going into politics, you must not forget to put the Omoluabi ethics in your bag. In fact, you must have had it before going in. You must know when to give respect. Load all the pockets in your outfit with patience also put it in your bag. I believe you can’t exhaust all the patience for the day”
“I told my ADC and Chief details to keep their heads when others are losing theirs.”
The Deputy Governor revealed that Mrs Ajimobi has called him, adding that “I understand her, she was grieving, mourning the death of her husband. We don’t know the enormity of that grief.”
