A member of the House of Representatives representing Lagos’ Ifako-Ijaye Federal Constituency, Adewale Oluwatayo, has died, his colleagues in the National Assembly confirmed to PREMIUM TIMES.
Mr. Oluwatayo, a former Special Adviser to Lagos State Government, died in the early hours of Wednesday in Abuja, sources said.
The lawmakers spoke on anonymity because Mr. Oluwatayo’s family was yet to issue a statement about his passing. They said his death was shocking because he was at the National Assembly barely yesterday.
Mr. Oluwatayo was a special adviser on Education in Lagos State between 2009 and 2011. Before then, he served as chairman of the state’s electricity board between 2004 and 2007.
Mr. Oluwatayo attended Ilesha Grammar School 1968. University of Nigeria Nsukka 1979 BSc. Lagos State University 2005 M.ED., his official citation on National Assembly Web site said.
