I’ll Miss Alao-Akala’s Open-heartedness — Jumoke Akinjide


Former minister of state for FCT, Oloye Jumoke Akinjide says she is still in shock and pain over the death of Ogbomoso-born former governor of Adebayo Alao Akala.

Akinjide, in a condolence message sent to newsmen, said the news came like a devastating bombshell.

“I am still stupefied by the death of Otunba Adebayo Alao-Akala. It has taken time to sink in and I am deeply saddened. Death has dealt us a blow in Oyo State with the loss of our dear former governor.”

The former minister commiserated with Governor Seyi Makinde, the family of the late former governor, the people of Ogbomoso, and the entire people of Oyo State.

“Otunba Alao-Akala was a leader in all ramifications. In politics, he made an indelible mark. In his community, he was loved and hailed, and above all his life impacted innumerable lives positively.

“Personally, I will miss his open-heartedness, elderly exhortations, his humor and political sagacity.

“May the soul of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.
Adieu Oyato Governor! ”
