The Oyo State Chapter of the People’s Democratic Party has accused Mrs Florence Ajimobi of instructing Police to prevent the state government delegation from accessing the venue of late Abiola Ajimobi’s eight days Fidau.
The accusation was made in a statement signed by the party’s state Publicity Secretary, Engr Akeem Olatunji on Sunday.
Late Ajimobi’s spokesperson, Bolaji Tunji had earlier claimed that the family was not aware that the deputy governor, Engr Rauf Olaniyan, some Heads of Service and Commissioners would be in attendance.
Oyo PDP’s statement read “To the unsuspecting members of the public, kindly disregard APC Media Team Press Release in its entirety, it wasn’t a private family affair because Otunba Alao Adebayo Akala and many others were there and the family were well informed in advance that the Deputy Governor would be leading the Government delegation to the event.
“It was reported that the security personnels at the gate informed the Government delegation that there was an order from Madam not to allow the Government delegation into the venue.
“Kudos to His Excellency Engr Rauf Olaniyan for displaying high level of maturity and Omoluabi ethos that he and His Excellency Engr Seyi Makinde are known for.
“The more the Governor try to extend hands of friendship the more they rebuff his good gesture.”
