The wife to the Oyo governor, Florence Ajimobi might have escaped allegations that she was arrested by the London Metropolitan Police this week, but the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) isn’t done yet.
The PDP’s publicity secretary, Lukuman Agboluaje, has asked Mrs. Ajimobi to explain exactly how many times she has travelled outside of the country. PM News had alleged that she has travelled 52 times.
“As much as we are not in a position to join issues with Mrs. Ajimobi on the alleged money laundering charges as reported by a local newspaper using an online publication as its source, we are constrained to ask some fundamental questions, especially from her own defence on arrival,” Agboluaje said.
“We are aware of the free education policy of the present administration in the state and our concern is the inability of the state’s first couple to allow their kid daughter enjoy the free education being dished out to the populace rather than for the First Lady to incessantly visit her daughter every three weeks in a UK secondary school.”
Agboluaje also pointed to other issues, especially PM News’s allegation that the State Agency for the Control of Aids is now under the office of the First Lady – wondering if the state is suffering from a lack of qualified hands.
Then the party ends with a cheeky missive:
“This is more so important when it is realised that a major shareholder of the offending publishing house, Independent Communication Ltd, is Senator Bola Tinubu, National leader of the ACN and the godfather of Governor Ajimobi.”
