Social media was abuzz with rumours about Ajimobi’s death late Thursday.
But Special Adviser to Ajimobi on Communication and Strategy, Bolaji Tunji, dismissed the rumours in a statement obtained by Channels Television.
“Kindly disregard,” he said. “We, however, continue to pray for him. Thank you all for the show of concern.”
Ajimobi is reportedly battling COVID-19.
On Tuesday, he was announced as acting National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) after the Court of Appeal upheld the suspension of Adams Oshiomhole.
