Governor Abiola Ajimobi has said that Adeyemo’s death was unexpected, adding that it had left a gaping wound that would take time to heal.
Ajimobi, who spoke at the special sitting held in honour of Adeyemo, amid tears, on Thursday, said that the late speaker was a true patriot who was passionate about the progress of the state.
According to him, the speaker’s demise is a great loss to the state, the current administration and the APC.
In his words, the Deputy Speaker, Oyo State Assembly, Mr Musa Abdulwasi, described the late speaker as a dedicated lawmaker who contributed meaningfully to the emergence and passage of quality bills of paramount public interest.
Abdulwasi described Adeyemo as a true patriot who placed the progress of the state above party interests and politicking.
“In the time that I have known him, we have come to form a great bond beyond mere comradeship and we had only just began our political journey together.
“His sudden death has cut that dream short and it has triggered many questions that are left unanswered.
“He was a fine legal practitioner who became a patriotic lawmaker; he was God fearing and a responsible son, husband and father,” he said.
