A popular Islamic Cleric and Preacher, Sheik Muyideen Bello said for Oyo State to have another Governor like Late Governor Abiola Ajimobi it may take fifty years.
Sheik Bello said this while delivering sermon during the 8th Day Fidau prayer in honour of late Ajimobi at his Oluyole residence , Ibadan.
The cleric who lash out at people for only coming out to sing the praise of the former governor after his death said such hypocrisy will attract judgement and punishment from the Almighty Allah.
The scholar who was accompanied by other notable Islamic scholars and cleric in leading series of prayers for the repose of the soul of the deceased recounted the various encounters he had with the Governor and where he (Ajimobi) had emphasis how he long to break the family jinx of living beyond 70 years.
Bello in his short sermon said “It will take 50 years to see another person like Ajimobi in Oyo State. He has lived his life as a lesson for us all to learn from.
“Many times, he didn’t hide his secret prayers of how we wants to live for 70 yeas and atleast break that jinx in his family because he always say no one has ever crossed the 70 years threshold in his family.”
In his vote of thanks, son of the former Governor Mr Idris Bolaji Ajimobi said the family has experienced a great loss that would be difficult to fill.
He thanked all the participants for the support to the family at this trying period, assuring that the children will always continue to uphold the living memory of their father, whose death still remain a shock to the family.
