The All Progressives Congress (APC) has reacted to the death of leader of socio-cultural group, Afenifere, and a chieftain of the party, Senator Ayo Fasanmi.
In a statement by Deputy National Publicity Secretary of APC, Yekini Nabena, he described the death of the 94-year-old as shocking and painful.
He however noted that Pa Fasanmi was an accomplished leader, who during his time was committed to the growth of the Yoruba community and the country at large.“Pa Fasanmi was one of Nigeria’s leading voices who spoke truth to power.
“In death, the APC celebrates an accomplished man and leader of the frontline Yoruba socio-cultural organisation who alongside championing the socio-political interests and preserving the ethnic identity of the Yorubas, was also an advocate of good governance in the country.
“Although born in Ekiti State, he chose to make Osun State home. The APC expresses condolences to the immediate family, the government and people of Ekiti and Ondo States and the Yoruba nation at large. We pray for the fortitude to bear the loss. The task before us now is to keep his legacies alive.”Photo Credit: Twitter
