Senator Ganiyu Solomon mourns Osinowo

Senator Ganiyu Solomon has described late Bayo Osinowo, also known as Pepper, as “a charming politician with a peerless approach to the game of politics.”

Reacting to the news of the sudden death of the 64-year-old Lagos East senator, Solomon said on Tuesday that the death of the politician has left a vacuum in the country’s political sphere and Lagos politics in particular “as we cannot have another Pepper, whose approach to politics was evidently unique”.

He said Osinowo was such a peculiar politician with a unique style and his politics devoid of hatred and unnecessary sentiment.

This, he said, was the more reason the departed was able to hold elected political offices for as long as democracy thrived in the country till his demise on Monday.

Describing the four-term member of the Lagos House of Assembly as exceptionally loved by his constituents, Solomon said: “No doubt, it will take a great deal to recover from this loss of a rare and calculative politician.”

He prayed that God gives everyone that is hurt by the loss of the departed, the fortitude to bear same, concluding that his efforts at strengthening democracy both at the local and national level shall not go in vain.
