SHOCKER: I washed dead bodies for 10 Years – Nigerian Governor Confesses

Governor of Oyo state, Abiola Ajimobi has revealed how he struggled to survive when he was studying as a young man outside the country.

He revealed that he washed dead bodies to survive. Ajimobi made this revelation on Tuesday at a South-west youth regional summit in Osogbo, while encouraging the youth to work hard and have a positive mindset.

He said his parents only sent him 30 dollars all through his stay abroad, adding that he had to look for a way to survive.

“I left Nigeria in 1963 to study abroad, but throughout my stay there, I was washing dead bodies to support myself to go to school. Whenever I got home from work, I will be weeping, remembering the number of dead bodies I washed.

My boss at work then said I should not be afraid or fear, adding that such feeling is normal for first comers. He encouraged me to always see those dead bodies as iced fish.

But against all odds, I survived and that is why I am urging youths to see hard work as the only way to success. I am saying this to challenge the youth of our next generation not to give up.This is our chance as youths and as Yorubas to come together to chart a successful pathway for the country.’’

  • "Ajimobi story" What difference has it made in him been a Gov? His story is not an excuse for his flagrant attitude towards the good people of Oyo State. I lived in the UK and USA for 18 years and did all sorts of jobs, that doesn't mean l have the moral right to maltreat my staff or disrespect people at will. Get real Mr Ajimobi

  • Work hard to earn a living not waiting for government to do everything for you. His is a good case study for our youth that no hardship last forever.
