Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State has recalled the strong support and prayers of his late mother, Alhaja Dhkirat Ajimobi during his journey to the Agodi Government House since 2007.
The handsome Governor said that his mother had always wished that he became governor until he won the 2011 governorship, poll adding that she would always pray that she would not have minded if his inauguration ceremony as governor turned out to be the last event she witnessed before her death.
He shared this story with dignitaries and well-wishers that converged on the Government House, Agodi, Ibadan, for the fifth anniversary of the death of his mother, on Tuesday.
Mrs. Ajimobi died in 2012 at the age of 85, barely one year after the governor took the oath of office as the number one citizen of the state.
Not minding the tumult and violence that attended the 2007 governorship election, as well as his failure to upturn its outcome at the Court of Appeal, Ajimobi said that the mother did not relent in her prayers that he became governor.
