Professor Adeolu Akande, Chairman Nigeria Communications commission has received with rude shock the death of the former Governor, Otunba Adebayo Alao-Akala, describing him as an astute politician, political leader whose heart was full of kindness , compassion for the people and his political colleagues.
While sympathizing with his immediate family, the good people of Ogbomosholand, his political followers and the entire people of oyo state, Akande in a statement urged them not to be despondent as “the ex- police officer, Ex- Governor died a fulfilled man with enviable accomplishments and should therefore be celebrated in death.”
” It may not just be a coincidence that Otunba’s transition came almost immediately after that of those great monarchs who joined their ancestors very recently- the Soun of Ogbomosho and the Olubadan of Ibadan, but should rather be taken as a Devine attestation to his kingly stature and unarguable greatness while with us”
“May God and the heavenly angels accord his soul a befitting reception, forgive his shortcomings and fortify those left behind” , the statement added.
