Late former governor of Oyo state, Abiola Ajimobi, once said that he prayed to God that he should die at 70.
Speaking on a radio show that aired on Splash FM during the Ramadan season, the late former governor said he wanted to die after 70 because his own father died two months before his 70th birthday.
Ajimobi died aged 70.
According to him: “When I was 40, I started telling God that when I clock 70, it is enough,” he told the Imams in Yoruba Language.
“My father died two months before his 70th birthday. So I started praying to God that I should get the grace to clock 70.
“After I clocked 70 and I seeing how sweet life was, I started telling God again that this age 70 is not enough please make it 96 years old.
“Now that you have prayed for me that I should clock 100, I am happy with it,” he explained.
The news of his death had first spread last Thursday, however, his family debunked the news.
It had earlier been reported that he had slipped into coma as a result of complications arising from the coronavirus.
Ajimobi, who was popularly called Constituted Authority, was born into a family of politicians.

Deji Adeyanju, an Abuja-based rights activist, has suggested why the All Progressives Congress, APC, is yet to conduct the screening of its presidential candidates 48 hours to the party’s primaries.
Adeyanju said APC is waiting for the outcome of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP primaries.
He alleged that the APC is afraid that the PDP may pick a Northerner as its presidential candidate; hence the delay.
In a post on Facebook, Adeyanju wrote: “48hrs to APC primaries, no screening of candidates or any single direction because they are so afraid PDP may pick a Northern candidate.
“That’s why they are waiting and going round and round. They are just waiting for the outcome of PDP primaries then in hours they will act.”
APC convention for the presidential primary will be held as scheduled from Sunday, 29th to Monday, 30th of May, 2022.
