The Acting National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and immediate past Governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, has remained Covid-19 positive two weeks after being admitted at the First Cardiologist and Cardiovascular Consultants Hospital, Lagos.

The National Working Committee, NWC, of the ruling APC had on Tuesday night named Senator Abiola Ajimobi as its acting National Chairman.

The development followed Tuesday’s affirmation of the suspension of the National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomholeby the Court of Appeal in Abuja.

It was gathered that Ajimobi, who was formally the Deputy National Chairman (South) of the APC had been hospitalised since June 2, 2020.

Ajimobi’s wife, Florence, was however, discharged from hospital earlier.

He was said to have been confirmed positive and was managing the situation at home before the illness worsened and he had to go to a hospital.

A source close to the family said the former Governor had an underlying ailment which was not unusual for men his age.

He said: “The former Governor has been in hospital for two weeks and his condition is not getting better but we are hoping for the best. The irony is that the person whom we believe he contracted the disease from has been discharged.

“However, the former Governor has an underlying ailment which is slowing down his recovery. We hope he recovers soon”.
