The Nigerian Senate on Wednesday observed a minute silence to honour the immediate past Governor of Oyo State, Senator Isiaq Abiola Ajimobi who died on June 25, 2020 at the age of 70.
The decision to so do was reached following a personal explanation by Senator Kola Balogun (PDP – Oyo South) on the floor during plenary.
Coming under rule 43, the lawmaker stated that Ajimobi made great strides in the world of business for almost three decades before delving into politics in 2003.
He noted that the deceased was an elected Senator who represented Oyo South Senatorial District on the platform of the Alliance for Democracy (AD), and served as Deputy Minority Leader of the Senate.
According to him, Ajimobi later went on to served as Governor of Oyo State between 2011 and 2019.
