Ekiti State Governor Kayode Fayemi and Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of Osun State, on Friday paid a condolence visit to the Alao-Akala family in their Ogbomoso residence over the death of the former Governor of Oyo State, Chief Adebayo Alao-Akala.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria, the home of the Alao-Akalas had become a Mecca of sorts since the demise of the former governor, who died on January 12.
Earlier, Senator Bola Tinubu, one of the national leaders of APC, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State, Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun and Governor Seyi Makinde had visited the family.
Also on the list were Governor Abdur-Razaq Abdulrahman of Kwara, Senator Abdulfatai Buhari, Senator Teslim Folarin, Senator Kola Balogun and former Governor Gbenga Daniel of Ogun State.
Others were Alhaji Hazeem Gbolarumi, Chief Niyi Akintola , Rev. Supo Ayokunle, Hon. Folake Olunloyo-Oshinowo, Prof. Abideen Olaiya, Prof. Dibu Ojerinde, Chief Bisi Ilaka and Dr Dare Akande.
Ajimobi, in her condolence message, described Alao-Akala’s death as another great loss to her family, saying she looked up to him to fill the vacuum her late husband had left behind.
“I thought and hoped you will be there for us as family for a very long time. Yet death threw a big blow at us. But who are we to question God? We submit and accept.
“You sacrificed for APC and that labour will not be in vain. We will definitely miss you a great deal.
“Please greet my dear husband Abiola, your own friend and brother. We love you, but God loves you more. Rest in perfect peace,’’ she wrote.
She prayed that God receives the souls of the departed and spare those they have left behind.
Youths and other residents of Ogbomoso had on Wednesday in their large numbers held a candlelight procession in honour of the late Alao-Akala.
