In a statement issued on Monday by its state chairman, Hon. Isaac Omodewu, Oyo APC expressed a deep sense of sadness and regret over it called “lamentable loss of a bright star, kind-hearted politician and patriotic citizen who lived well to serve his people and society but had to transit to the great beyond when more was still expected from him.
“JFO, as fondly called by friends and admirers, was an epitome of service and humility. He was an Omoluabi par excellence and he did his best to impart positively on the lives of many people who he came across in and outside politics. We are saddened by his transition at this time but the we find solace in the fact that he left behind a legacy that family members, friends and associates can be proud of.” Oyo APC stated
