Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Governor of Lagos State, has described the death of Otunba Adebayo Alao-Akala, the former Governor of Oyo State, as a major loss to his family, the people of Oyo State, particularly the sons and daughters of Ogbomoso, and Nigeria as a whole.

Governor Sanwo-Olu also expressed condolences to Oyo State Governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde, and leaders and members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the state and national levels on the death of the party’s top leader in the state.

In a statement released by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Gboyega Akosile, on Wednesday, Sanwo-Olu said Alao-sudden Akala’s death has caused a deep sore in the hearts of the people of Oyo State and Nigerians who looked up to him as a rallying point and a political stabilizer.

The Governor also expressed his condolences to the deceased’s family and urged them to remain hopeful, saying that the former governor’s service to the people of Ogbomoso, Oyo State, and Nigeria as a whole will be remembered in perpetuity.

On behalf of the government and people of Lagos, I express my condolences to my brother, Governor of Oyo State, Engr. Seyi Makinde, sons and daughters of Ogbomoso, people of Oyo State, the deceased family, friends and political associates on the death of Otunba Christopher Adebayo Alao-Akala, “he said.

“I am saddened by the death of Otunba Alao-Akala because of the vital role he was playing in Oyo APC before his death. When I learned of his passing, my heart was heavy with sadness.

“Otunba Alao-Akala was a politician who was more than that. He was a man of many parts, with managerial talents and experience that were needed at this important time in our country’s history, particularly in our party, the APC, as we prepared for the general elections in 2023.

He served Oyo State passionately, first as a Deputy Governor and later as Governor. He did his best to contribute his quota to the growth and development of Ogbomoso as council chairman as well as Oyo State as Governor. He also made his mark in the Nigerian Police, where he retired as Assistant Commissioner of Police in 1995 before venturing into politics. “

While commiserating with the deceased’s family, Sanwo-Olu urged them to take heart, saying “the death of loved ones is usually one of the most painful episodes in people’s lives, but we must realise that death is inevitable.” We all will die someday. Therefore, we must muster enough strength to carry on.

“I pray that Almighty God be pleased with the soul of Otunba Adebayo Alao-Akala and grant the family and the people of Ogbomoso and Oyo State the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.”
