The demise of Senator Abiola Ajimobi is still very much a mystery, his spokesperson, Bolaji Tunji has said.
Bolaji recently said that the aides of the deceased were always quick to give him hands sanitizer any time he touched something.
According to him, he still cannot wrap his head around what happened because the ex-governor was very healthy and neat while he was alive.
He added that his aides were very conscious of his age and they did all they could to ensure his safety, but it is sad that things ended this way.
His words, “I still can’t wrap my head round what happened. He was so healthy, he was neat, he took all the necessary precautions even while he sat with us in our open office he was always with his face mask, we always observe social distancing.
“We were always quick to give him hands sanitizer any time he touched something.
“We were conscious of his age and did all we could to ensure safety. We had three spots where you had to wash hands before entering the premises. One at each of the main entrance gates and another by the entrance to our office. We observed all due protocols. So what happened? How did it happen? None of us was sick. So where did this come from? I am still trying to find answers.
“He never wanted anything else after the general election.
“He only wanted to take a long, due rest after serving for 8 years without break.
“But another position was thrust on him. He never solicited for us and he did not want. But they convinced him to accept. I know because in his usual forthrightness, he narrated how it happened. He took the positions because he felt it would benefit his people. ‘ I have done my bit. There is nothing I set out to achieve that I did not, I cannot be governor again, but I cannot leave you people ‘, he would say.
“But what went wrong? I am at a loss.
“I was so sure he would get up the sick bed. I was so sure because there were unfinished businesses. There were so many tasks that he had planned ahead to better the lot of the people.
“So I was convinced he would come to complete those tasks, those plans. I never knew it would end this way.
“A legend is born with the death of a hero. You will forever remain in my heart, in our heart. I have learnt so much from you.”
