Mrs Florence Ajimobi, wife of the past governor of Oyo State, the late Abiola Ajimobi, has debunked rumours that she was offered commissioner slots by Governor Seyi Makinde.
Ajimobi made this disclosure on Monday.
The late Abiola Ajimobi ruled the state as governor between 2011 and 2019. Re-elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2015, he died in 2020.
An online platform had circulated the news that Gov Makinde, elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), purportedly offered Mrs Ajimobi two commissioner slots.
In a statement signed by her media aide, Bolaji Tunji, the widow of the former governor insisted that the rumour was not true.
According to the statement: “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.”
