A video has emerged showing the gravesite of the former governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Isiaka Ajimobi, designed with top-notch marble, interior decorations and an air conditioner.
Late Ajimobi died on the 25th of July, 2020, at First Cardiology in Lagos, after developing complications from the novel Coronavirus.
A lot of controversies trailed the burial of the late governor, as there were reports that the current Governor, Engineer Seyi Makinde, did not give approval to the family to bury Ajimobi at the site they desired.
Gov. Makinde noted that the request was declined as disputes concerning the land in question were being settled in the court of law, adding that he permitted the family to bury the Late Ajimobi at his residence at Agodi GRA Ibadan.

Some weeks after Ajimobi was buried, his widow, Florence Ajimobi, noted that death was a ‘necessary evil’ which no one has power or control over when it is due.
She urged all and sundry to always be mindful of their actions and efforts while alive, saying everything about life is vanity in itself. Dr. Ajimobi made the remarks at the weekend while hosting reporters who visited the Ajimobi’s Oluyole, Ibadan home on a condolence visit.
“We are celebrating a man who impacted the lives of everyone he came in contact with. Your been here today, it says a lot. Human beings are the most difficult to please in life, but when people who have worked with you come back to visit or pay a condolence visit, it shows that you put that smile on my face. Today has not been a very good day for me, it has been a very turbulent day and emotional, but thank you for putting smile on my face with your visit.
“Yes daddy has gone, but for me, it’s not his going we are celebrating. As a man, he came, he saw and he conquered and I know he’s resting at the bosom of God.”
“…Who knew in December, that in exactly six months and nine days anybody had told him that, that would be his last birthday, he would probably say jump in the lake. We should just live every day as if it’s our last and have a very good relationship with God. Our ultimate goal on earth is to make heaven, whether as a Muslim or a Christian, whatever way we pray to God or serve,” Mrs Ajimobi added.
