A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Oyo State, Dr Ismail Adebayo Adewusi, has expressed shock at the sudden death of the Speaker, Oyo State House of Assembly, Hon. Michael Adeyemo.
Adeyemo died in his Ibadan home on Friday of heart failure.
Adewusi, who is a major political leader in Ibarapa land, described Adeyemo’s death as a huge shock, saying he was taken away at a time he was making great contributions to the political and socio-economic development of Oyo State and Nigeria.
As a fellow Ibarapa indigene, Adewusi said he shared robust ideas with the deceased at different times, pointing out that he was a good representative of the zone.
He praised his astute leadership in the House of Assembly and extolled his virtues which he listed to include humility, candour, forthrightness and hardwork.
“Adeyemo’s death is a great loss to Ibarapa land, Oyo State and Nigeria at large. Given the qualities he manifested, there is no doubt that Adeyemo represented new generation of young politicians who also brought professional expertise to politics for the good of Nigerians. He will be sorely missed on the political turf in Oyo State.” Adewusi said.
He prayed God to give his family, Ibarapa indigenes, members of the House of Assembly and the Oyo State Government the fortitude to bear the loss.
