Wife of the former Governor of Oyo state, Mrs Florence Ajimobi has described death as a necessary evil that has no respect for any mortal as it can come anytime stressing that everybody should be on the right side all the time in order to be qualified for eternity in heaven.
‘”Death is a necessary evil and no one knows when it will come the same way we don’t know when a child will come.They can give you EDD but no Doctor or soothsayer can say exactly this child is going to be born on 25 June at 1.00pm and the same way when we come into the world.
Deaconesses Ajimobi who was the initiator of Women Intercessory Network when her husband ruled for eight years ,/counselled that the ultimate goal of any being is to make heaven regardless of any religion to which one belongs.
She gave this advice last Thursday when a group of journalist covering the First Lady’s beat paid a condolence visit to her at their Ibadan residence.
Mrs.Ajimobi commended the team for the condolence “saying”We are celebrating a man who impacted the lives of everyone he came in contact with ”
“Your being here today says a lot . Human being are the most difficult to please .People who have worked with you come back to visit or pay a condolence visit .it shows that you put that smile on my face today .It has not been a very good day for me, it has been a very turbulent day and I emotionally thank you for putting that smile on my face,..
” Yes daddy has made his mark.We are celebrating a great man, .He came, he saw and he conquered and I know he’s resting at the bosom of God .That is my joy and that is what is giving me peace, he made heavens That is how he related when we are in the world
“It’s not enough to celebrate or mourn a life, but what lessons have we taken from what happened. No one can tell you when you are going to die. It will come whether you are sleeping, eating or drinking it has to take something with it. I am ever so proud to be called his wife .
Advising Nigerians for the sustenance of love and oneness among one another,she admonished ” let us as much as possible make peace with everyone, be sure life is transient and there is nothing in it. Doesn’t matter who we are or think we are, if God says we are nothing, it doesn’t take him one second to make you nothing, whether in wealth, asset in anything .My prayer is that you will all succeed and continue to prosper in all your endeavours and even on the midst of this pandemic you will not partake out of it and God will bring it to an end, in Nigeria and the the entire world.
Three journalists who spoke briefly during the visit admitted that the deceased has left a good legacy in the state and prayed that peace ,love and harmony as well as good health would reign in the family.
