Oshiomhole disclosed that his last minute with Ajimobi was during APC’s National Working Committee (NWC) meeting in Abuja.
In a statement, Oshiomhole recalled that the Ajimobi was insightful in his contributions during the meeting.
“I recall that our last moments together was at the National Working Committee (NWC) of our great party, All Progressives Congress (APC), just few weeks ago. He flew into Abuja that day for the meeting.
“As usual, he brought his deep insights, candor and infectious humour to bear in his contributions as the National Vice Chairman to our discussion that day. You couldn’t fault his forensic logic, nor resist his disarming jokes,“ Oshiomhole said, describing the late politician as a true and loyal friend.
“He appeared robust and healthy. Against this backdrop, nothing could therefore have prepared me to entertain the suspicion – much less, the thoughts – that it would be our last interaction.
“A family man who treasured the company of his wife and children more than anything, he was in a hurry to return to his Ibadan home as soon as the meeting ended.
“Alas, the news came few days later that he had taken ill. It will, therefore, not be incorrect to say that Senator Ajimobi met his death serving our great party, APC,” Oshiomhole said.
