The People’s Democratic Party, (PDP), Osun State Chapter on Friday condoled the family of Senator Mojisoluwa Akinfenwa over his demise.
Osun PDP in a condolence message to the family issued by the State Chairman of the party, Hon. Olasoji Adagunodo described the former Commissioner for Education in the old Oyo state under the regime of the late hief Bola Ige, between 1979 and 1983 as a great educationist, policy manager and progressive innovator who managed the free education policy of the UPN regime under Chief Bola Ige with success.
Hon Adagunodo in the message made available to newsmen said Senator Akinfenwa was a decent leader whose public and private live style became a symbol of authority in Nigeria and was worthy of emulation.
He stressed that the former Senator of the Federal Republic, who represented Osun East Senatorial district between 1999 and 2003 under the platform of the Alliance for Democracy, AD, was a bridge builder whose political affiliation was not allowed to affect his mutual relationship with humanity and those around him irrespective of their political, religious and social beliefs.
“Even as the National Chairman of the Alliance for Democracy, Senator Akinfenwa didn’t relent in giving useful advice to Ijesa sons and daughters who were later members of the ruling PDP when his party, the AD, which later became an opposition party after it was defeated out of power in Osun and Nigeria in 2003 by the Peoples Democratic Party in an electoral Tsunami.”, he said .
While calling on Nigerian politicians to take a clue and emulate the noble way of accessible politicking that Baba Akinfenwa was known with during his lifetime prayed to God to give his family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss, regretting that his death has already created a big vacuum and deep gully in the political landscape of Nigeria that will be difficult to fill.
He also prayed to Almighty God to grant him eternal rest.
