Former Oyo State Governor Abiola Ajimobi is alive, according to his spokesman Bolaji Tunji.
Reports online went viral on Thursday that the former Governor passed on after infection by coronavirus. He is also reported to be battling diabetes.
But the spokesman told Morning Mail that the reported death is “absolutely untrue.”
As Deputy National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Ajimobi is in the thick of controversy over who should rightfully assume office as the party’s chairman following the affirmation of the suspension of the office holder, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
