A video clip published by Nigerian Tribune shows the duo engage in an open exchange of words on Sunday, June 28. The newspaper reported that the argument took place during the visit of some governors to commiserate with her and the Ajimobi family.
In the video, Mrs Ajimobi is seen complaining that the Oyo state government had not commiserated with the family on the death of her husband.
Her words: “I think the least anybody can do, as a God-fearing person, is to send me a word of encouragement at that time. And even after he died, not even you, Mr Deputy Governor called me…”
The deputy governor then interjected by saying, “I called you.” Replying, the former first lady of Oyo state said: “You should have sent me a text message. “I don’t have your number, I can’t pick up. I am the wife of a politician, I don’t pick numbers I don’t know. You can send a message. Everybody is going to die. My husband is dead, and he served this state for eight years. What are we talking about!”
Other governors present such as Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano had to wade in asking both sides to keep the peace.
