Less than a week after the burial, Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State has promised that the State government would immortalize the late Aare Musulumi of Yorubaland, Alhaji Abdul-Azeez Arisekola-Alao.
Ajimobi stated this in Ibadan while receiving former Vice President Atiku Abubakr who paid him a condolence visit on the demise of the late philanthropist and businessman.
The Governor said late Arisekola-Alao epitomized service to humanity, adding that the Oyo people would continue to remember him for his unrelenting humanitarian gestures.
Ajimobi confessed the deceased was a pillar to his government, thus deserved to be honoured for his immense contributions to the socio- economic and religious development of the state.
“He deserved the honour because he represented what many of us will like to be. As a kind-hearted individual, we will continue to remember him.
“Aare was not the richest man in Nigeria but he helped the rich and neither was he the poorest man in Nigeria but he helped the poor,” Governor Ajimobi emphasized.
