Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State has condoled with the people and Government of Lagos State over the death of Senator Sikiru Adebayo Osinowo.
Abiodun described the late lawmaker’s death as shocking and unbelievable, saying “we have lost a committed politician, grassroots mobiliser and a confidant.”
The sudden death of Senator Osinowo, who represented Lagos East at the National Assembly, he noted, was a personal loss to him.
The Ogun State governor, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Kunle Somorin, noted that Senator Osinowo, popularly called ‘Pepperito’, was a committed progressive and a grassroots mobiliser, who worked tirelessly for the good of his people.
“I received the sudden death of our brother, Senator Adebayo Osinowo, who died on Monday as a rude shock. He was only 64 years and I personally had hoped that he would live long to continue to render selfless services to the people of Ogun and Lagos states in particular and Nigerians in general.
