The Oyo State chapter of the Association Of Local Government Of Nigeria (ALGON) has announced a 3-Day fasting and prayer for speedy recovery of the former Oyo State Governor Abiola Ajimobi.
In a statement by the Chairman of the association, Prince Ayodeji Abass Alesinloye, “Algon, Oyo State Chapter want to categorically and emphatically state that Senator Abiola Ajimobi, our leader is not dead, will not die but liveth. He has achieved tremendously in his chosen career. Even if he dies today, he has lived well and only the Almighty Allah has his judgement at hand.”
“Either one wish him dead or alive, death is an inevitable end and every living soul must taste it. So, why are we in a hurry to proclaim him dead when his appointed time is not yet ripe. It is an aberration even in the land of the living to wish one’s enemy dead.”
“God gives and takes life hence no individual has powers over the life of others. Senator Abiola is full of life and in his characteristic bubbling mood. We enjoined well-meaning Nigerians to disregard the news.”
Senator Ajimobi who was known to have been suffering from complications arising from Covid 19 pandemic in the recent past has been suddenly rumoured to have died by some dimwits and evil thinking people.
The staement further stated that former Governor Ajimobi has served his dear State meritoriously for good eight years and does not deserve to be wished dead especially now that he has been elevated and saddle with the new responsibility to pilot the affairs of the All Progressives Party, APC nationwide.
“Senator Ajimobi will surely overcome the ailments and come out better and stronger to fulfill his God destine purpose on the planet earth.”
“It is on this basis that we at ALGON have directed our members, all councilors, political appointees and other well wishers to proceed on a-3 day fasting and prayers commencing from June 20th 2020 at our respective locations for his quick and speedy recovery. This could have been done congregationally but for the dictate of time occasioned by coronavirus pandemic, we asked everyone of us to observe it individually.”
“We pray Almighty Allah to keep our leader safe, sound and prolong his life.”
