Ajimobi’s spokesman, Bolaji Tunji, in a post on his official Facebook wall stated that his principal is still alive.
“Kindly disregard the rumours, just rumours. In all, we remain prayerful.”
The former governor, who was named the acting National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress on Tuesday, had been on quarantine for over two weeks, battling COVID-19. Ajimobi, who is 70-year-old is believed to have an underlying illness which is slowing down his recovery.
