The Lagos State Governor, Mr Babatunde Fashola, on Saturday, described as shocking, the passage of the Ayangburen of Ikorodu, Oba Salaudeen Oyefusi, at the weekend.
Reacting to the sad occurrence, Governor Fashola described the late Oba, who was Vice Chairman of the Lagos State Council of Obas and Chiefs, as an epitome of discipline and integrity, who loved his people and the state. [eap_ad_1] He said that the state would sorely miss the royal father and national merit award winner, who had contributed immensely to the development of the country, the state and the Ikorodu community.
Governor Fashola noted that the death of the paramount ruler, coming at this time, would surely rob the state of the great contributions and wisdom of the very humane monarch, who carried the interest of the state above all other considerations till he breathed his last.
He prayed for the peaceful repose of the soul of the paramount ruler and for the Almighty God to grant the family he left behind, as well as his subjects and indeed the entire Ikorodu Community, the fortitude to bear the loss.
