Mimiko, Fasoranti mourn Lam Adesina

Lam Adesina

The Ondo State Governor, Olusegun Mimiko,  has described the death of Lamidi Adesina, a former governor of Oyo State, as  a sad and shocking loss.

Mr. Mimko, in a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Eni Akinsola in Akure, said though death is a necessary and certain end to all beings, the suddenness of Mr. Adesina’s death cannot but be shocking.

The statement reads in part, “Alhaji Lam was a humble teacher and good leader of his people. He was not known to be flippant, arrogant with power or inordinately ambitious.

“When his people called upon him for leadership, he was not abusive of the privilege and did not amass wealth to the detriment of the people.

“Our heartfelt condolence goes to his family, the government and people of Oyo State and indeed all his associates,” Mr. Mimiko said.

He prayed for God’s strength to the family as they mourn their loved and respected member.

In his reaction, the factional leader of the Yoruba Socio Cultural Group, Afenifere, Reuben Fasoranti described Lam Adesina’s death as a rude shock.

Mr. Fasoranti in a telephone conversation said he received the news of the death of the former governor of Oyo State with surprise.

“The death of Lam Adesina is coming to me as a shock. Though he has been on the sick bed, I thought he would recover from it. We cannot but pray to God to give his family the fortitude to bear the loss.”
