Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun has described as shocking, the sudden death of Senator Adebayo Osinowo, who represented Lagos East at the National Assembly.
Prince Abiodun, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Kunle Somorin, noted that Senator Osinowo, was a committed progressive and grassroots mobilizer, who worked tirelessly for the good of his people.
“I received the sudden death of our brother, Senator Adebayo Osinowo, who died on Monday, as a rude shock. He was only 64 years and I had hoped that, as an astute politician and administrator, he will live long to continue to render selfless service to the people. We will miss his wealth of experience”, he said.
Gov. Abiodun said though the deceased was an illustrious son of Ogun State, he displayed political and administrative acumen wherever he found himself, adding that his meritorious service as a four term member of the Lagos State House of Assembly, led to his election as a Senator, where he served as Chairman, Committee on Commerce, Industry and Trade.
While urging the people to take solace in the good legacies left behind by the late Senator, the Governor prayed for the repose of his soul and for God to grant his family the fortitude to bear the irreplaceable loss.
