The National Assembly has urged the Federal government in its resolution to rename the Ibadan Airport after late former governor of Oyo State, Abiola Ajimobi who died on 25, June 2020.
The deceased former governor also served in the Senate between 2003 and 2007. He was also a principal officer of the Assembly as minority leader.
The resolution of the Senate followed a motion by the Senator Buhari Abdulfatai (Oyo North) APC, who described the governor as a jinx breaker for returning for the second time as a governor, which was the first time in the political history of Oyo State that a serving governor got a second term.
The Senate also resolved that a high powered delegation be constituted to visit the family to commiserate with them and the people of Oyo state for the loss of the former governor.
The Senate also observed a minute silence in honour of the late Senator Ajimobi.
Until his death, Ajimobi was Acting Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress amidst its crisis that was finally resolved by the dissolution of the NWC by the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party.
