A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Oyo State, Engineer Joseph Olasunkanmi Tegbe has commiserated with the immediate family, all the people of Oyo town, Alaafin of Oyo, the Governor of the state and the state government over the demise of Rt Hon Kehinde Ayoola.
Tegbe, who was an aspirant of the APC in the 2019 general elections, in a statement made available to insideoyo.com on Thursday described the late speaker of the Oyo state House of Assembly as one of the best in Oyo.
Ayoola died on Thursday morning In the private hospital in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital after a brief illness.
He said: “I am completely taken aback by the demise of Rt (Hon) Kehinde Ayoola, JP. Our humble beginning, 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.”
