Nigerians have dug up an old interview of the late Abiola Ajimobi saying he used to pray to God to allow him attain the age of 70 before he dies as that will be fine for him.
In the video,the former governor of Oyo state, Abiola Ajimobi had jokingly said he used to pray to God to let him clock 70, saying he would be fine once he achieved that. He then added that after he celebrated his 70th birthday, he asked God to extend his life to 96.
Ajimobi in Yoruba said,
“I used to tell God that once I attain 70, it’s okay. My father died two months before his 70th birthday. So, I used to pray that if I can attain 70, I’ll be fine, but after I clocked 70 with all the good things that came with it, I told God to extend my life to 96, because that 70 was too short.”
