The member of the House of Representatives representing Oluyole federal constituency, Hon. Tolulope Akande-Sadipe, has joined others to commemorate the first anniversary of the passage of her late uncle, benefactor and former governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, who passed away June 25, 2020.
And to mark the one-year anniversary of the passage of the former governor of Oyo State, Akande-Sadipe shared a handful of emotional laden words, reminiscing some of the memorable moments she shared with the late politician.
She said, “Lives are like rivers: eventually they go where they must. Not where we want them to. My uncle, my mentor, my leader, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, 25th of June 2020, still seems so surreal. A day you flowed like a river to the Almighty.
“Today, a year later we celebrate you as we will till eternity, for a year ago, a warrior went to be with the Lord.”
Calling on Nigerians to emulate the late politician’s rare virtues, she said, “I call on us all across Oyo State, let us emulate his ways to keep his dream of a better Oyo State alive.”
She continued, “Our actions, and not our words alone, will keep his legacies alive for a greater Oyo.
“Through us all, his legacies tangible (infrastructural) and intangible (leadership character and family values) will stand the test of time.”
She wished late Senator Ajimobi eternal rest in the bosom of the Almighty.
Concluding, she wrote, “Koseleri, the master builder of modern Oyo, sun re.”
