The details of the date for the burial ceremony for late Sen. Abiola Ajimobi the two-term governor and former senator who died on Thursday 25th June has been made public. 

In close consultation with the government of Lagos and Oyo State, the family of the deceased ex-governor of Oyo State has finally picked a date for the burial ceremony.

Barring any changes, Mr. Bolaji Tunji, representing the family said the body of Abiola Ajimobi will be interred at the Senator Ishaq Abiola Ajimobi Central Mosque at Oke Ado, Ibadan at 12noon on Sunday the 28th of June 2020 after the traditional Muslim prayers.

The release seen by our correspondent further stated that;

"To ensure that strict COVID-19 protocols are adhered to and in light of the current circumstances of our national health challenges, the family appeals to the public to observe strict adherence to COVID-19 protocols in their participation.

"Furthemore, details of the live media coverage of the funeral ceremony will be made public by tomorrow.

"In the near future, details of a larger funeral gathering will be announced where a lot more of his well wishers will have the opportunity to pay him their respect."

Recall that after exiting political offices, Abiola Ajimobi among other things established the Ishaq Abiola Ajimobi Islamic Centre in Ibadan as one of his landmark donations to mark his 69th birthday in December 2018.. The centre incorporates a state of the art central mosque. The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar inaugurated the edifice on the day. The chief Imam of Ibadan, Sheikh Abdul Ganiyu Abubakar in recognition of the iconic donation, turbaned Ishaq Abiola Adeyemi, Ajimobi as the Bashorun Musulumi of Ibadan land.
In 2019, during the festivities to commemorate his reaching the landmark 70th birthday, Abiola Ajimobi noted that he had a lot to thank God for in reaching the iconic age because, according to him, no one in his male lineage was able to attain that milestone before they passed on.
