Florence Ajimobi, wife of the late Abiola Ajimobi, ex-governor of Oyo state, has taken to social media to celebrate him on the occasion of their 40th wedding anniversary.


Ajimobi breathed his last on June 25, after suffering complications from COVID-19, the respiratory disease caused by coronavirus. He was aged 70.

In a video on her Instagram page on Sunday, Florence shared several beautiful memories she had with Ajimobi before his eventual demise.

She also described her marriage to the deceased as a privilege due to his charming personality that made their union a blissful ride.


“40 years ago, I signed the dotted lines to a lifetime commitment and unconditional love in matrimony between myself and my husband, @abiolaajimobi at Mapo Hall, Ibadan,” she wrote.

“Our marriage was filled with love, laugher, mutual respect and peace. We were indeed a perfect team and I thank God for the privilege of being wife to this wonderful man for 40 years.”

In another post, the former Oyo first lady announced ‘My Life Like a Rainbow’, her book, which examined how she met Ajimobi.


“I chronicled how my husband and I met in my book ‘My Life like a Rainbow” she added.

The late governor tied the knot with Florence in 1980. The union has been blessed with five children — four girls and a boy.

Florence had in April revealed how she caught her late husband cheating twice but forgave him after he apologised.

“Even on one or two occasions that I’ve caught him cheating, he would apologize. Once he does that, it ends. I never go back to them again. I never ever discussed it,” she had said.


“To err is human but to forgive is divine. Even as a wife, sometimes I fall below his expectations. Sometimes, we do things that are even worse than cheating.”
