The resolution of the Senate followed a motion moved by Senator Abdulfatai Buhari (Oyo North), urging the Senate to pay tribute to the departed former Senator.

He described the deceased 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 to send a high-powered delegation to commiserate with the family and the government and people of Oyo State of the death of the former Governor.

The upper chamber in its resolution on the motion also paid its last respect to the late Senator Ajimobi as it observed a minute silence for the former minority leader of the Senate.

The motion was approved by the Senate when it was put to voice vote by the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan.
