” I was both shocked and saddened to hear about the tragic losses of some elected councillors on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State. My heart aches for the Oyo State Councillors’ Forum, the progressive family, the constituencies they represented and the families they left behind”, he said
The Senator added, ” I convey my deep condolences to Oyo State Councillors’ Forum, Oyo ALGON, bereaved families, followers and our party, APC. I pray to the Almighty God to rest their souls in peace and give strength to all of us to overcome the unfathomable losses”.
He however charged the Oyo APC leadership should take an advantage of the Holy month of Ramadan to organise special prayers for the departed members and to also support the bereaved families.
