This is especially true of the ruling party,the All Progressives Congress where he had been billed just a few days ago to take over as the acting national chairman of the party following Oshiomole's ouster.

Also one man that will be especially saddened by the turn of events and Ajimobi's Death is the national leader of the party and former governor of Lagos State, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Apparently, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu had been banking on Ajimobi take over from Oshiomole in order for him to continue to maintain his dominance and control of the party's top leadership.

Initially his control of the party machinery too had been shaky since Oshiomole's position was threatened when the Court of Appeal had initially upheld his suspension.

Tinubu and his inner caucus had quickly sponsored the candidacy of Ajimobi to take up the deputy chairmanship position in order to arrest the situation that looked ahead back then but unfortunately that eventually has turned out not to be.

Recall also that just this Thursday, the Victor Giadom led leadership had disbanded the party's National Working Committee and this might be the beginning of a new trend and workings in the ruling party which will just further point out to the fact that Tinubu's hold on the party will be next to non-existent.

This will go ahead to influence in no small measure his 2023 alleged Presidential ambition.

In all, all indications are not pointing in his favour.
