Former Oyo state Governor, Abiola Ajimobi has died of Coronavirus at First Cardiologist and Cardiovascular Consultants in Lagos where he was obtaining treatment.
Ajimobi, who was governor from 2011 to 2019, was named the Acting National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress last week but never resumed.
He was said to have tested negative for COVID-19 but the illness had caused his health to deteriorate.
He was said to be managing the illness at home before the situation worsened and he had to go to a hospital.
Like other VIPs, he was said to have opted for private treatment rather than a public facility after his condition worsened.
