Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State on Thursday expressed shock and sadness over the sudden death of his ‘loyal friend’, Kehinde Ayoola.
Until his death, Kehinde Ayoola was the Commissioner for Environment in Oyo State. He passed away on Thursday morning.
However, in a statement released on Thursday, Makinde noted that he received with deep sadness the news of the demise.
“He also served as the Director-General for my 2015 campaign and the Deputy Director-General for my 2019 campaign.
“He was a loyal friend with a dedication to duty that cannot be questioned.
“He will be surely missed for his great oratory skills and his love for the people of Oyo town and the state in general.
” May his soul rest in peace,” the statement quoted the governor.
Makinde, however, prayed that God would grant the late commissioners’ wife, children, the cabinet, the government of Oyo State, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and the entire people of the state the fortitude to bear the loss.
