Gov. Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State has revealed that he washed dead bodies as a youth to pay his tuition fees while schooling abroad.

Ajimobi disclosed this at a South-West Youths Regional Summit on Tuesday in Osogbo.

The governor, while urging the youth to have a positive mindset toward hard work, said his parents only sent him 30 dollars all through his stay abroad.

Ajimobi said
“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.

“When ever 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, however, urged Yoruba leaders and governors to unite for the progress of the Yoruba race.

he likes funerals, he did not notice how organised london was, how everything is carefullly managed and planned, london and its country are small yet they ruled over countries 50 times bigger than their country, its a testament to their ingenuity and capacity to make things work, that is what the nigerian youth needs, the environment and the capacity to see clearly and make use of ordinary things to make great things, it is not hardlabour.

It's not easy to make an honest pay. Those who get it the other way waste it.
