A gubernatorial aspirant under the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the 2019 general election, Engr. Joseph Olasunkanmi Tegbe has described the late Commissioner of Environment and Natural Resource in the state, Hon. Kehinde Ayoola as an astute statesman and a brilliant Speaker.
Tegbe, in a statement made available to newsmen, also stated that the late Rt. Hon. Ayoola was one of Oyo’s best.
He wrote,”I am completely taken aback by the demise of Rt (Hon) Kehinde Ayoola, JP. Our humble begining, growing up in Oyo, especially the corridors of Kosobo- Odo Aro- Apara, is a memory I’d always hold dear.
“Kehinde Ayoola was one of Oyo’s best. From and beyond his time as the young, brilliant Speaker of the Oyo State House of Assembly, he remained an astute statesman who saddled himself with the responsibility of putting Oyo State on the map positively.
“My thoughts and prayers at this time are with his immediate family, all the people of Oyo Town, His Royal Majesty The Alaafin, the Executive Governor and the Oyo State Government.
“May the Almighty grant them the forbearance to hold up during these trying times and may his gentle soul Rest In Peace. Amen.”
