Osun State Deputy Governor, Rauf Olaniyan, on Friday, led the state delegation on a condolence visit to the family of the late Commissioner for Environment and Natural Resources, Kehinde Ayoola.

Mr Ayoola died on Thursday morning at a hospital in Ibadan, Oyo State capital.

Consoling the wife of the deceased, Prof. Olukemi Ayoola, the deputy governor described the demise of Ayoola as unexpected and a great loss of an active player in Governor Seyi Makinde’s administration.

He said late Ayoola was never a dormant member of the state executive but a resourceful and active contributor during state executive meetings.

He lamented that Ayoola died when Mr Makinde and his team were trying to reshape and reset Oyo from where they met it.

The deputy governor, however, said the deceased came and conquered by playing his own role in reshaping the state.

He consoled the wife, children and the entire family of the deceased to accept the heartfelt sympathy of the state cabinet and the people of Oyo State.

Responding on behalf of the family, the deceased’s son, Bel’Oluwawi Ayoola, thanked the government delegation for the visit.

Secretary to the State Government, Olubanwo Adeosun; Head of Service, Amidat Agboola; and the governor’s chief press secretary were among the delegation.

The late Ayoola served as Speaker of the Fourth Session of Oyo State House of Assembly under the Lam Adesina administration.
