Ajimobi’s Wife Denies Getting Cabinet Slots From Makinde

Widow of former governor of Oyo State, Dr Florence Ajimobi, has denied any offer of commissionership slots from Governor Seyi Makinde.

Apparently reacting to an online publication on behalf of Mrs Ajimobi, former special adviser on communication and strategy, Bolaji Tunji, said there was no time that such overture was made to Mrs Ajimobi.

“This news is strange to us. We can state categorically that at no time was such an offer discussed.

“Mrs Ajimobi holds the governor in high regard. He has continued to exhibit good leadership traits while playing the politics of a unifier with the aim of bringing peace to the state, however the report about commissionership slots overture could only be attributed to mischief makers,” he said.

Putting the record straight on the role of Mrs Ajimobi during the of the last general elections, he said Mrs Ajimobi who was the Oyo State Coordinator of the Oyo State Tinubu/Shettima (OTISHE) Women Presidential Campaign Organisation worked for the victory of the presidential candidate of the party.

“During the period, she engaged various stakeholders in the state such as the leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Trade Associations, Market Men and Women, Muslim women groups, youths and students bodies among others in the build up to the election.
