The Nigerian Senate on Tuesday urged the Federal Government to immortalise a former Governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, by naming the Ibadan Airport after him.

The resolution of the Senate followed a motion by the Senator Buhari Abdulfatai (Oyo North) APC, who described the governor as a jinx breaker for returning for the second time as a governor, which was the first time in the political history of Oyo that a serving governor got a second term.

The Senate also resolved that a high powered delegation will be constituted to visit the family to commiserate with them and the people of Oyo for the loss of the former governor who served his state for eight years.

The upper chamber in its resolution on the motion also paid its last respect to the late Senator Ajimobi as it observed a minute silence for the former minority leader of the Senate.

Supporting the motion, Senator Ibikunle Amosun (Ogun Central) APC, said the late Senator Ajimobi was a hardworking governor and lover of his people.

He recalled that he was a man of peace and full of humour as he usually will keep all in his company laughing with jokes and banters.

The motion was approved by the Senate when it was put to voice vote by the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan.

This is coming amidst report that Abiola Ajimobi has been exposed to be the owner of a multi-million mansion in Rockville, Maryland, United State.

Ajimobi was said to have purchased the house for $1,347,200m (N522,713,600m) during his second term in office as governor of the state in 2016.

KanyiDaily had reported that  Ajimobi died at the First Cardiology Hospital in Ikoyi, Lagos, as a result of Coronavirus complications.
