Following the death of the ex-governor of Oyo state, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, an interview video has surfaced of the late lawmaker praying to age above 70 years.
In the video, Ajimobi jokingly said he used to pray to God to let him clock 70, adding that he would be fine once he achieved that. According to him, after his 70th birthday, he asked God to extend his life to 96.
Ajimobi in Yoruba said,
“I used to tell God that once I attain 70, it’s okay. My father died two months before his 70th birthday. So, I used to pray that if I can attain 70, I’ll be fine, but after I clocked 70 with all the good things that came with it, I told God to extend my life to 96, because that 70 was too short.”
