The APC leader who was a member of the sixth Assembly, described the death of the politicians as a big blow on the country’s democracy as the two of them contributed to the development of the nation when they had the opportunity to serve.

Ojelabi said Akeredolu was a dogged fighter for the institution of democracy and the rule of law, and a brave governor with strong passion for the welfare of his people.

“He was loyal to his leadership call and a true progressive who had been fighting a medical battle for a while now.”

His death, he said, was “a great loss to the All Progressives Party (APC), the immediate family members of the deceased , the people of Ondo State and Nigeria as a whole!”

Similarly, the APC Chairman has sent his condolences to the family of the former Speaker Ghali Umar Na’Abba who, he said, would be solely missed for his steadfastness and integrity

Ojelabi who was a former member of the House of Representatives from Lagos State, said the former speaker, who died at the age of 65, contributed greatly to the legislative arm of government and the strengthening of democracy in Nigeria.
