The wife of the former Oyo State governor Florence Ajimobi has disclosed that her late husband lived a fulfilled life and now in heaven at pecace with his maker.
Mrs Ajimobi said this during a visit by the Oyo state council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) led by the chairman Ademola Babalola paid him a visit as part of Eid-el-Kabir celebration.
Mrs Ajimobi appreciated the media and political family of her husband for their support towards the family.
“What does it profit a man even if he lived up to 90 years and he can’t make heavens? Abiola Ajimobi made heavens and he is at peace with God. That is my greatest consolation. That is my joy. I cried and sad because I missed him.”
“I am crying because I missed him. I missed everything about him. I miss his love, his advice, having him around me, he was my strength. He was my greatest supporter. He thinks I am a strong woman but this time, I tell you I am not a strong woman. He used to give me all the strength I needed, so when I cried, not because he hasn’t achieved much but because I missed so much about him.
“I don’t want to behave like unbeliever because I know nothing happens without God impute. We are all here one day and we are all going back one day. Nobody knows when death is going to come. I believe so much in destiny and I believe my husband time was up.
Speaking further on the legacies of her husband, Mrs Ajimobi said: “God will give the family the strength to uphold his legacies and to continue the good work he has done because when I listen to all the good things people has to say about him, I am so pleased to have him as husband.
I am proud to be his wife. I am proud to share the best 40 years of my life with him. I know the journey ahead of me is a long one but with God on my side, it is achievable. I know God will sustain us, our family and his political family.
Thanks for the love. His political family has been so much supportive and I
don’t what we would have done without them. I want to use this opportunity to tell all of them to show love to one another. Life is short. Abiola Ajimobi has gone today, who is next? Nobody knows. It could be anybody. While we are here, lets show love to those we know and love. It is not enough to love them in our heart.
Mrs Ajimobi also sent a message to this keeping grudges with her husband
saying: “Whoever is grudging Abiola Ajimobi, who else do you want to grudge now? The man is dead. That peace you cannot make again. You cannot rectify it. I know whoever is not happy with him will feel that guilt forever because the opportunity to make us with him is gone.
“Let’s us use this opportunity of Sallah to forgive each and other. Let’s also use his death to have a review of our lives. What we are doing wrong and how to correct it. the former first lady added.
