Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, on Thursday expressed sadness over the death of the elder statesman and leader of Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere, Senator Ayo Fasanmi.
Governor Abiodun, in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Kunle Somorin, described Pa Fasanmi as one of the great icon who made indelible contributions to lawmaking as a Senator and later member House of Representatives in the Second Republic.
While commiserating with the family of the late elder statesman, Abiodun urged them to uphold the ideals he stood for, saying that the nation will continue to draw inspiration from his life and times.
He said Baba Fasanmi paid his dues and has left his footprints on the sands of time. He was a professional to the core and a servant leader in its truest meaning. Nigeria will miss his voice of wisdom on critical matters concerning her development. He was an epitome of altruism, justice and courage and he sided with the masses at all times.
