The immediate past Governor of Ogun State and the Senator representing Ogun Central Senatorial District at the National Assembly, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has expressed sadness over the news of the death of an APC chieftain in Ogun State, Otunba Olajide Awosedo.
Awosedo, who was the Chairman of Grant Property Limited, died on Tuesday at the age of 68.
Senator Amosun, in a condolence message signed by his former Special Adviser on Information & Strategy, Rotimi Durojaiye, described the deceased as a great politician who left an indelible mark on the sand of history, not only in Ogun State, but across Nigeria.
He said he believed that Otunba Awosedo’s place in posterity has already been assured by his long and worthy service to his people and Ogun State as well as his notable contributions to the development of his community, state and country as a leading businessman, politician, and inspirational community leader.
As they mourn his passing, Senator Amosun urges the Awosedo family, friends and associates to be consoled by the knowledge that he lived a very fulfilled life, and has left worthy legacies for everyone to build upon.
“I take solace in the fact that he lived well and has left a precious heritage which we can be forever proud. May his kind soul rest in perfect peace”, the former governor said.
