Minister of works and housing Babatunde Fashola has lost his uncle Salmon Fashola, fondly called Uncle Kay.
The Giwa Olori Giwa Adinni died on Sunday and was buried same day in accordance with Islamic rites.
In a condolence message sent to the minister, All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Bola Tinubu urged the family and others left behind by the deceased to take heart and accept his passing as the will of God.
Tinubu, who handed over to Fashola as governor of Lagos State in 2007, prayed that God will grant the family the strength to bear the loss.
“He also beseeched Munificent Allah to admit the deceased to Aljanna Firdaus,” a statement from his office said.
